Our little princess loves Cinderella, so I decided to make a Cinderella Princess Castle Cake for her 3rd birthday. I was inspired by several cakes on this site, and combined my favorite features into this design.
The cake itself was very simple to make. Just a square cake using a 9-inch pan, and frosted with buttercream icing. I hoarded my paper towel rolls for a few weeks, and frosted those with white icing to match the cake. I found it difficult to get the icing smooth on such a curved surface, so I rolled them in sugar for a sparkly finish.
For the turrets, I frosted sugar ice cream cones, rolled them in blue sugar (purchased from a craft store) and inverted them on top of the paper towel rolls “gluing” lightly with buttercream. I lined the castle walls with sugar cubes found at the grocery store. I piped on a few windows and flowers, and “Happy Birthday”. I also made a small flag with the number “3” and attached with a toothpick to the highest turret, but it didn’t make it into the photo!
Of course, Cinderella, the prince, and a glass slipper found at a party store were the perfect finishing touches. My princess was delighted!
My boyfriend and I made this cake for his niece's 4th birthday. The bottom tier are 2 10" cakes, then we stacked 2 8" cakes on top of that. The 2 towers in the back are made out of mini muffins with an ice cream cone for the point. We used just a regular muffin for the front column with an ice cream cone on top. We stuck dowel rods through the middle of the column and attatched it to the cake. The muffins were kind of hard to ice, so rice krispie treats may be easier. We used a crown she had and set it in front of the column. The princesses were just scrapbook stickers that were attached to wax paper and iced on to the bottom tier. The crowns above the princess stickers are Wilton's crown cankles. We covered the cake board in fondant and stuck the rest of the stickers all over. Everyone absolutley loved it...and of course it was fun to do together.
I had an "Everything Disney" party for my daughter's fifth birthday party. Kids came dressed up as any Disney character they like! We had Nemo, Snow White, Ariel, Jack Sparrow, Tinkerbell and many more at the party!
So her cake was a Disney princess castle cake with several Disney characters in each window! (I just had a bakery create the rice paper transfer for me) and applied them myself!
The towers are two regular ice cream cones and the pointed top is the "flat top waffle cone type"!
Using a set of cake toppers and set, my daughter and I made a castle with all the princesses. We used plain white frosting and only colored it to make the vines. The flowers came from a a specialty cake store and were helpful when you're short for time. Finished with a picture of the birthday girl, the cake went over well. It was simple, but still beautiful.
I made this for my daughters first Birthday. I used the wilton teir cake pans and I purchased the figurines from the disney store. The frosting was also wilton. i sprayed the castle pink and put sprinkles that looked like glitter on the cake as well. I also used the castle kit by wilton too
