Especially for little girls! If it’s an after-school party, they can bring their costumes and “dress-up” together. Count on their spending most of their time in front of the mirror!
Bake our lemon chiffon bake mix as directed on package. Trim top to make level; place top side up on serving plate.
Prepare our fluffy white frosting mix as directed on package; reserve 1/2 cup frosting. Frost cake with remaining frosting, using up and down strokes of spatula on side of cake and radiating strokes from center to edge of top.
Drop the reserved frosting by spoonfuls around top edge of cake, swirling each into a peak to resemble the point of a crown. Place silver dragées on each point of crown. Press more dragées and slices of colored gumdrops on cake.
A guessing game that’s fun for young ladies is Ladies in Waiting: Sit in a circle with the children and tell them, “To please the Queen you must bring her a present. If she likes it you can be a lady in waiting.
“If not, you can try again when it is your turn. There is a trick connected with the presents the Queen likes, and if you listen carefully, you will be able to figure it out.” The trick is that each person must bring the Queen a present that begins with the same letters as her first name.
