My sweet obsession

Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!

Doesn’t every 4 year old girl want to be a princess?  Our little neighbor, Isabel, certainly was one for her birthday.  She requested a Rapunzel cake for her princess party, and I couldn’t wait to get started.

I began by watching the movie Tangled.  I never get a chance to just sit an watch a movie, let alone one of my own choosing.  I happened to be home alone and took full advantage of it!  I loved this film.  If you haven’t seen it, rent or buy it for sure.  You don’t even need a kid around to see it – it was that good.

Next came the tower construction.  I made a ton of Rice Krispy Treats for this.  The roof was my biggest challenge – that is until I was walking through the automotive aisle at K Mart.  Once I saw that giant funnel hanging there, I was truly inspired.

This cake really did use a variety of techniques – textures, extrusions, molds, hand shaping, and engineering.  I think the most intense moment came when I had to load it in the car for the 1/2 hour drive on back roads to get it to the party.  Thankfully, we made it in one piece and little Isabel was thrilled.
