Have you made a Princess Cake?
Princess cake is a good friend's favorite. I don't usually bother making bakery style cakes even more than than I don't bother making restaurant style food, but after I saw them making Princess cakes on Food Network, I thought I might try one for the friend's birthday in a couple of months. I've made all the components, but never considered making them into a cake. I'd also only seen cut pieces before--the ones on FN were mostly domes. Is that just because dome molds are in style, or is it de rigeur?
So... If you've made a Princess cake, do you have any comments, hints, warnings, discussion?
