As I wanted a rich chocolate cake and wanted the edges not to have a cut surface (brown crumbs) I purchased two square cake pans from a professional cooking supplies shop. They had such an array of sizes to chose from you could make it as large or small as needed.

If you were making a vanilla or using a brought sponge you would just cut and do a crumb coat to seal the crumbs in. I used a cream cheese icing so it wasn’t so sweet. (Most of my guests were adults).

The windows and door on this Princess Castle Cake Design were pink wafers and I piped on the white detail and let dry before putting on the cake. The wafer top came off the base from the moisture in the icing so be careful that the windows don’t fall off the cake. I split the wafer then stuck them on. I then piped a darker pink for contrast.

Mini marshmallows with silver cashews stuck on with icing to decorate the castle. Ice cream cones with coconut for snow and pink edible glitter. Musk sticks for the draw bridge with more mini mallows. Shredded coconut with green food colour for grass.

This is an easy cake to decorate and the impact was huge. Everyone loved it especially my princess.

A friend asked me to make her daughter a Princess Castle Cake Design. I lucked out when I saw that Wilton has a castle making kit. I really didn't stray and make my own design, instead I made it just like the picture on the box. The color combinations looked so pretty.

For the cake I used the 10in pan and a 6in pan. Each layer is 3 layers high. I made an almond white chocolate cake on the bottom and a chocolate fudge for the top. The cakes are covered in homemade marshmallow fondant (I love that stuff!) The flowers are also made with MM fondant. I piped the leaves with green royal icing and covered the doorways and windows with purple royal icing.

Turrets were covered in purple royal icing then rolled in purple glitter and sprinkles. I stopped by the Disney store and bought some princess figurines as a gift to the birthday girl and set them up around the cake upon delivery. Should have gotten a picture of that! It was so cute. I also picked up some sparkler candles for them.

I made this Homemade Princess Castle Cake Design last year for my daughter's third birthday. It is entirely edible apart from the doll horse and towers.

It was made from ready made Swiss rolls, covered in marzipan and fondant icing. A Christmas cake bottom, covered in marzipan and fondant, a medium sized sponge sandwich pink cake, topped by a small sponge. all covered in marzipan and fondant.

The tower tops were made from silver doilies and I used a white lustre blown all over the cake at the end. Sugar cube steps, the stand under Cinderella was cake, edible glitter.

I had never done anything like this before, but was really pleased with myself. I'd love to know what everyone thinks of it. I tried my best lol.

I made this Princess Castle Cake Idea for my niece, using gum paste for the towers and sponge covered in sugar paste for the main castle. I then piped on the ivy and made the princess and cat from sugar paste, then added edible glitter. We had one very happy little girl on the day.
