There aren't a lot of "Eloise in the Plaza" cakes "out there" on the net. If you don't believe me, go Google it and see. I found about 4 that were worthy (I'm so humble) of a good look, but none of them was anything like what we had in mind for this cake (we being me and Avery's mom). Avery, just turning age 5, doesn't just love Eloise... she loves the Plaza Hotel, itself - which I think is just the cutest thing ever for someone who is barely 5. So I decided if she loves the Plaza, the Plaza she shall have - and I put it right on top of her cake! I also included Eloise herself (an obvious decision), Weenie the pug, and Skipperdee the turtle. Avery's mom, Bridget, requested the pink on pink stripes and harlequin pattern for the two tiers, which I thought was ingenious. (I'm certain I would have done it that way even if she hadn't requested it *wink wink*) Cake was WASC with whipped vanilla bean butter cream filling and icing. Everything is completely edible right down to the pearl necklace. Happy birthday, Avery!
