This is my first Homemade Princess Castle Birthday Cake. I made this cake for my daughter's 6th Birthday! I was pricing cakes around my area grocery stores and since licensed cakes are usually more expensive and since we are on a budget I decided to give it a try to make one myself. I've made cakes before but I've never tried anything like this before, and I'm pretty happy with the results and so was my daughter.
This cake was about 25.00 to make including the toys on top. I bought the cake topper and buttercream frosting from my favorite bakery. I used 2 boxes of cake mixes, 2 pounds of white frosting, 1/4 pound of green and pink frosting and another 1/4 pound of blue and yellow. I used a 9in pan for the 2 bottom pieces that I got at the Dollar store and 7in cakes (2) for the top half. I used Wilton tips to create the flowers, grass ivy and door, which was only a couple of dollars at the craft store.
I layed the cakes, biggest to smallest on top and used 2 different kinds of ice cream cones to make the top appear castle like. I stumbled on this sight before and got a few ideas from other cakes but had to create my own original design because I wanted to make sure it was everything my daughter wanted and more.
I will be making another larger version for her big party next weekend. So hopefully I could inspire other Moms at the party.
This Princess Castle Birthday Cake is a special cake I made for my daughter's 1st birthday. She's my little princess! The bottom part of the cake is 2 stacked 9"x11" cakes. The top is 2 loaf pan cakes stacked. The towers are ice cream cones dipped in choc candy chips and the tops are sugar cones.
It took 12 cones and 6 sugar cones to make the pillars. I cut 1/2 circles in the edges of the cake to make them fit. I then wrapped the seams in tiny fondant ropes and attached pearl candies to make them pretty. The whole cake is fondant covered with piped details. The door, windows and flowers are also fondant.
She loved it but but cried when we cut into it. This was by far the most fun I had making any cake!

I made this Princess Castle Birthday Cake for a friends 4 yr old daughter. The first tier is vanilla sponge with bavarian creme filling, once it was stacked I carved the cake to the shape it is. I measured each wall panel seperate and cut up the fondant to the various sizes, then I used a boulder texture mat to get the look on the fondant.Once the fondant was ridged I put the panels on. I topped off the first tier with a pink fondant top. The second tier was the same process except I made it round. The windows were cut from black fondant and the door was white fondat with a wood texture from a texture mat, then the door was painted.The peaks are ice cream cones covered in pink fondant, and fondant flags on toothpicks.
I made a ten inch round layered cake, and a 6 inch round layered cake. I covered both tiers with pink buttercream icing. I then rolled out pink fondant. I cut it to fit around the bottom tier and textured it to look like brick. Then did the same for the top.
I made the towers out of fondant, made a white fondant cone for the tops. I printed out princess pictures off the interenet. Cut them out and used clear tape to laminate them, cut them to size and put them randomly around the castle. Put them on fondant and framed with butter cream. The other decorations are also made out of fondant, and buttercream.
