Homemade Castle Fortress Cake

Homemade Castle Fortress Cake

My niece wanted a birthday castle cake, but didn't want it to be too "girly", more like Medieval castle fortress cake style. I made 2 12-inch square cakes and 1 10-inch square. I stacked the 2 12-inch squares and cut a quarter-circle out of each corner.

Then I took 4 flat ice cream cones, put one upside-down in each corner, frosted like crazy. Next I put 4 flat ice cream cones right-side-up on top of the bottom cones, again frosted like crazy. I anchored the top cones by pushing grilling skewers all the way through to the bottom. I cut the 10-inch square into 4 strips to create the wall around the top. It's also anchored on with skewers.

To create the crenelation around the top, I used sugar cubes and piped frosting all over them. The stone/brick effect was created using a Wilton #150 tip, just piping short pieces in horizontal lines like brick shapes. We made ladders using uncooked spaghetti, broken into smaller pieces and glued together, then propped them up on the cake. The drawbridge is made out of part of a Hershey chocolate bar.

Homemade Castle Birthday Cake Design

I've recently discovered that I have a talent in baking. My latest challenge was from my friend for me to make her a Castle Birthday Cake Design for her 23rd birthday. At first I thought it would be very hard and stressful, after a bit of research looking on the computer at different recipes I thought I'd take up the challenge.

To make my cake I baked a large Victoria sponge for the base and a small one for the top. Using 4 Swiss rolls for the towers around the sides and ice cream cones for the tops, which I dipped in icing and covered in pink sprinkles at the bottoms. Then I decorated with buttercream icing by adding a few drops of pink food colouring into the buttercream, then used sweets to make the finishing touches.

I thoroughly enjoyed making it and my friend enjoyed eating it! I am already looking for my next cake challenge!

Coolest Castle Wedding Cake 19

Homemade Castle Wedding Cake

Homemade Castle Wedding Cake

I made this Castle Wedding Cake for one of my best friends weddings. The bottom cake was made from a 14" sponge, covered in ivory sugar paste, I used 4 mini Swiss rolls, 1 in each corner secured with buttercream, to give the castle effect.

The tower was made using a 6" round sponge cake, a large Swiss roll and a mini Swiss roll. I used dowels for support, each covered separately. Once it was all assembled then I piped brick like lines using a thin piping nozzle.

I put roses in each corner and at the front of the cake. The Mickey & Minnie actually came from Disneyland (my friend had bought them on a previous holiday specially for her cake), then to finish I sprinkled heart shaped confetti over the top of the cake around Mickey & Minnie.

like the fact its more or less all edible. I can buy the towers here made from rice paper but this idea is so much better. Really well done .

Homemade  Castle Cake Idea

Homemade Castle Cake Idea

I made this Castle Cake Idea for my daughter Jamie's 5th birthday party. It's a Cinderella castle cake. I used two round sponge cakes on top of each other for the base. I used empty toilet rolls joined together with tape for the sides
and iced on top of them.

Ice cream cones where used for the tops. I added the princess carriage at the entrance to dress up the cake a little. She loved the cake and the party was a hit. This was a fun one to make.
