5Lovely Layers

If your little one can’t bring herself to choose just one Disney princess, here’s a clever way to include all of her favorites. Devote a layer to each princess. Adjusting the frosting colors accordingly helps sets the specific mood. 

6Color Wonder

Isn’t it amazing how certain colors call to mind our favorite Disney princesses? Without even seeing a picture or figurine, the combination of light purple, turquoise, and gold immediately makes you think of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. So don’t forget the colors you choose are just as important as any symbols.
