She’s So Fancy, That Nancy

[4]Not too long ago, I asked readers to challenge me [5] with a birthday cake theme. There were some very clever suggestions, the top two in a readers’ poll being “Breakfast” and Fancy Nancy.

Breakfast I know, but being that my children who speak in complete sentences are all boys [6], I had no clue who or what Fancy Nancy [7] was. Turns out she’s a young girl with a passion for accessories and all things “fancy.”

I decided to do both the top two cakes. And yesterday was Nancy’s turn. Are you ready? (Stay tuned for how I put a breakfast plate on a cake.)

Now remember, I’m working with a handicap – I haven’t been challenged by many girly likes or dislikes yet. My daughters are 2 and 5 months.

For Nancy’s cake, I made a purse filled with edible accessories: rings, gold coins, bracelets, sunglasses, a wand, and a mirror. I went against my personal dislike of purple and made the cake a lavendar hue since I know little girlies like purple. (That’s right, isn’t it?) I tried to use a heavy hand on the sprinkles and sparklies because those seem fancy.

Anyway, here it is: my Fancy Nancy Birthday Cake!


Let me know how I did.
