Someday..you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again ♥

I went to my first Renaissance Fair last weekend.
And it was even better than the first time I went to Disneyland!
Dressing up in costume always brings me back to the fearless, real me ♥ The side of me who gets to be what she always dreamed of.  And this last weekend, it was a fairy princess! 
Which reminded me of an amazingly sweet princess who glitterized my heart this summer.
Princess Kianna. ♥
I tried my best to tell her fairy tale on a cake.
I agreed to meet with Kianna in person over a lunch date one day, and I asked her what she'd like on her cake.
Her request..
Magic Wands. ♥
Pink & Purple Cake Layers!
Sparkles, princesses, and crowns!
I added ruffles to the cake to match the birthday princess's purple tutu ♥.
..and made princess doll cake pops to match!
I printed the princess paper dolls from Activity Village, cut out the crowns separately and glued them to each princess paper doll. ♥
The princess skirts were the cake pops!  (I've made these before using Barbie as the icon, and you can click on the link here for the tutorial on how to make your own paper doll pops!)
The magic wands were birthday candles with a fondant star on top!  I used a star fondant cutter to cut out fondant stars.   My "fairy godmother" touch:  I warmed up candy melts in the microwave. The candy melts were my edible glue to turn a basic birthday candle..into a glittery starry magic wand!♥
How did I come up with all of this on one cake? It was imagination more than magic. I channeled my inner "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".Most importantly, my inner Princess Kianna! 

....Because a princess Kianna exists in all of us, even when we are "all grown up."
♥Honored to be Kianna's fairy godmother for a day!
I couldn't resist, I saved the text her mom sent me.
Yes, princess Kianna, you have glitterized my heart! ♥
..or if you're around me..maybe eating them? ♥

I just HAD to come out here, working on a frustrating project for my job, and I just got a *sigh of relief*! It's just a fairieland of magical glitter and wonder that makes me feel 7 years old and just peachy again.
