Princess cake. The name alone makes me want to eat it. Of course, that's coming from a girl who was a princess for Halloween last year—and the year before that.
Who can resist a sparkly tiara? Not me! Emilia, of A Gluten-Free Day, baked a Swedish Princess cake, which traditionally is a sponge cake filled with cream and topped with a layer of green marzipan and a rose. Why is a Princess cake green? That might be one of the most counterintuitive things ever. Thankfully, Emilia made the marzipan pink, although, she says, "all the marzipan haters might want to try fondant on top," which leads me to wonder, what marzipan haters? Haters make me sad. That said, the cake turned out gorgeous and is certainly worthy of the princess title.
