Princess Cake, To make this cake you will need three 8 inch round cakes, and one cake baked in a four to six inch deep bowl, and one Barbie doll. Simply cut the dome off the 8 inch round cakes so they are flat on both sides, then cut about a 2 in hole in center of each cake. Stack all three 8 inch round cakes on top of each other with pink frosting in between each layer. Then invert the cake that was baked in a bowl and place on top. Just place the Barbie doll in the center hole and begin to decorate. The cake makes the dress for your princess.
Okay, by now, you know, I do research on trivial/little known traditions, so let me tell you why, supposedly we are to keep the top of the cake for a year and then eat it with your spouse on your one year anniversary. You know I had to know. One, because it seems so random. Two, our cake did not make it through the first six months (My husband had never heard of that tradition and thought that I’d forgotten that we had cake in the freezer. Ate, some of it and then called to remind me that we had cake. Do I hear a collective intake of shocked breath?) The tradition comes from the 19th century [There were a lot of things pertaining to cakes happening during that century. I wonder if Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom loved cake. Yum.] Anyway, during the 19th century, it was usual and expected that the bride and groom would invariably have a child 9 months or so after their marriage, so the top layer of the cake was saved to have at the Christening. This was before refrigeration, so where were they keeping it? For nine months and was it still any good? Boggles the mind doesn’t it? Maybe they were filled with liquor to keep or fermented or fermenting fruit?
