Princess Camp & Cinderella Cakes

PRINCESS CAMP

About 5 years ago, my 10 year old daughter started a Princess Camp. Twenty-four girls come every year (mostly neighborhood girls without really marketing the camp). There are crafts, a camp song, a show, dress-up day, games, Ariel's beach day, etc. It is a precious week for my daughters, their friends, and these little girls.

SUMMER BUSINESS

This camp also helps my daughters and their friends run a business. They set schedules, manage receivables, expenses, manage employees, etc. One day this year, we are going to a gardens where there is a fairy hollow and the children will make fairy houses and play games around the beautiful flowers in the Arboretum.

CAKES!

Being a cake perfectionist, meaning, I always strive to find the perfect cake for each special occasion. With this in mind, I think every little girl should have at least one Barbie Cake in her life time--I remember a friend of my mom's made me one in honor of my dance recital. My girls have had a Snow White, Cinderella, etc. as well as many fabulous, designer cakes too. Here are some examples of Cinderella theme cakes and the coveted Barbie Cake.

What a fun and fruitful adventure for these lucky children. I would love to know the name of the Fairy Garden that the girls are going to if you would be willing to share. It sounds like something that my grandaughters would enjoy.
Hope all is well with you.
Hugs,
Sue

my husband ordered me a cinderella inspired birthday cake this past year. It looked just like the pillow with the glass slipper on it. There is a pic in my blog under: modern day cinderella.
