Disney’s Cinderella was one of my favourite animated movies as a child. Even now Cinderella remains as one of my favourite Disney Princess movies. It’s such a classic and really captures the imagination of children between the beautiful princess, the evil stepmother and step sisters, the little mice and of course the dashing prince!
These Cinderella Cupcakes are inspired the Cinderella story right down to the pretty glass slipper. These would be great for a princess party!
