Question about Huffy Disney Princess 16 in. Girls Bicycle
I did no find assembly instructions specific to this model. From what I see in pictures and descriptions it looks like a standard caliper brake on the front wheel. The knob/plug on the cable should fit into a groove and hole on the brake lever if the cable is slack enough to make the connection. You may have to loosen the cable tension nuts at the caliper and at the brake handle (labeled 1 & 2 in the instructions) to get enough slack.
Generic instructions are at: http://www.huffy.com/resources/pdfs/multispeed_manual.pdf
See pages 21-23 for instructions about adjusting the brakes. You will have to do this after making the connection and it shows the various cable tension nuts that you can use to get enough slack in the cable to connect it. If you loosen the cable tension nuts (1&2) enough you should be able to remove the cable from the slot through the housing, expose the attachment slot in the brake handle by pressing it against the handlebar, insert the knob/plug into the hole and then work the cable back into the slot in the housing. Tighten up the tension nuts and make the final adjustments as described in the instructions.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
It is a good idea to only disassemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference.
The drum brakes are self-adjusting and require a manual adjustment only after the brake shoes have been replaced, or when the length of the adjusting screw has been changed while performing some other service operation.
Fig. Fig. 2: When using a brake adjustment gauge, first measure the inside diameter of the drum (top) and then adjust the brakes shoes to the proper outside diameter (bottom)
Fig. Fig. 3: Measure brake shoe thickness in several places around the shoe
Inspect the brake shoes for wear using a ruler or Vernier caliper. Compare measurements to the brake specifications chart. If the lining is thinner than specification or there is evidence of the lining being contaminated by brake fluid or oil, replace all brake pad assemblies (a complete axle set).
