Homemade Princess Tower Castle Cake

I made this PrincessTower Castle Cake for my daughter's 18th birthday. I had made a castle when she was four so when she requested one for her 18th I don't think I realized the amount of work that would go into it. I tiered four sponge cakes, the bottom one was rectangle and the other three circles in decreasing size. The 18 towers were bacofoil tubes cut to size and covered in roll out fondant icing. The turrets and spires were ice cream cones, a whole one stuck in the tube for the turret and the cone snapped off the second and inverted for the spire. Each turret and spire were covered in roll out fondant and then I made 2x9 designs for each spire.

I made the door out of cut out cardboard covered in fondant and left to dry and decorated all the borders with piped royal icing. It was a sight to behold but I would recommend fruit cake rather than sponge as even though I had secured the towers with kebab sticks and iced them into place they all toppled in transit so I had to do some creative scaffolding with cocktail sticks.

All turned out well and she was delighted with her cake. This is the sixth cake I have ever decorated in my life so if I can do it anyone can. It was 18 inches high by the way. I hope it inspires you.

This Homemade Princess on Castle Birthday Cake I made is a chocolate-mocha cake with a mocha whipping cream frosting. My sister in law is throwing her 2 daughters a princess birthday party, since my daughter (12y/o) is the godmother of one of the 2 kids we offered making a cake for them.

The chocolate cake is a ready made packaged mixture but the mocha cake came from scratch that I have been using for a while. For frosting I used a heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar plus instant coffee. Just beat everything together until stiff. So I made a size of 16x11, 1 mocha, 1 chocolate cake and 8" round mocha and chocolate. I layered them alternately while putting frosting in each layer.

I colored the frosting pink although it already has a tinged of brown from the coffee but I think it worked out. I used a ready made Pillsbury frosting for the purple swirls, names and leaves. The daisy flowers, crown and castle are candy toppers that we bought from party city. We ordered the princess figurines online ahead of time.

For the towers we used cones, covered it with Pillsbury frosting and sprinkled it with pink and stars candy sprinkles then topped it on the chocolate cupcake with purple swirls.

My nieces loved the cake so much, so happy of the outcome. So thankful to your website because my inspiration came from one of the cakes in this site.
