My grandaughter wanted a Princess Castle Cake Idea for her third birthday. I had no idea how to pull that one off! I started by gathering ideas from websites and books, then winged it along the way. I baked 3 10inch round dark chocolate cakes and split each into 2 layers so that I ended up with 6 separate layers.
I used white buttercream frosting between each layer , on the sides and on the top. Then I took cake style icecream cones turned them upside down and stacked them to varying heights. I topped these off with the pointed sugar cones to finish off each turret and added toothpicks with velum on the tops for the flags. Then I used pillow mints as a top border.
I used pink sugar waffle cookies for the windows and doors and heart shaped candies for accents. I piped pink frosting using the star tip to cover the cones and to add accent borders.Just a dab of icing secured the candy hearts to the door and windows.I made this cake over the course of several days placing it in the refrigerator uncovered when not working on it. I was shocked at how moist it was.
When my husband and I brought the cake into her house, her mouth flew wide open and her eyes got as big as half dollars. It was worth every minute I spent working on this cake just to see her expression.
I used Wilton's castle kit for the main part of the Princess Castle Cake Design. I stacked two round cakes on top of a sheet cake. I placed dowel rods down the center, just in cake. I made the stone path and the shingles out of fondant. I rolled 3 balls out of fondant and placed on toothpicks for the trees.
The stream is tinted piping gel. I used icing to stick the shingles to the tops if the towers. This wasn't easy and half ended coming off. That is why there is some tops missing, by the time I got to the party the shingles were off so I couldn't use all the tops. For anyone that wants to use the castle kit, find a a way to make sure the towers stay next to the cake. I actually cut out part of the cake to place the towers in so they stay, but still didn't work. If I would have known I would have tried to drill holes in the sides of the towers and put toothpicks or sucker sticks in the holes to hold to the cake.
My three year old wanted a princess castle with princesses. I tried to use a castle formed pan and had no luck. I then just made a two tiered cake covered with buttercream icing then pink fondant. The windows, doors and trim were all made with fondant as well.
A couple of days before the party I used a fondant and gumpaste mixture to make the towers. I took two toilet paper and two paper towel rolls covered with plastic wrap as molds to wrap the fondant around. I then let them sit and dry till the day of the party. To finish off the towers I iced sugar cones and then rolled them in colored sugar. I attached them with icing.
The princesses are dome shaped cupcakes with my daughters Polly Pockets stuck down the middle. I wrapped their legs and bodice with plastic wrap so there would not be crumbs in the body.
This Homemade Princess Castle Cake Idea was a lot of work but when my daughter woke up on her birthday and said, "It is perfect!" it was all worth it.
A friend asked me to make a "Princess" castle. I had an idea seeing so many castle cakes, and this is Princess Castle Cake Design is what I made. It was chocolate chip cake with a whipped filling and BC frosting. I topped it with a Princess tiara so the birthday girl can use it over and over again. I used fondant accents, bubble gum, sugar cones and strawberry wafers. I think she liked it.
