I made this Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She loves Disney princesses so I bought the castle kit and designed the rest. I made 2x 20cm square vanilla cakes with raspberry swirl and 1x 10cm square cake. I placed larger cakes on top of each other and covered in purple buttercream icing then cut the smaller cake into quarters and used 2 of the quarters placed on top of each other and placed that on the centre of large cake.
I added the turrets from the kit to the sides. I then covered 4 waffle cones in purple icing and rolled them in purple decorating glitter and placed them on top of turrets. I shaped the windows and door out of pink wafer biscuits and made the moat bridge with block of chocolate. The board is covered in green fondant with aluminum foil used for grass effect and cut out blue fondant for the moat then covered in blue cellophane.
I also used edible flowers for decoration on board and mini marshmallows around edges of top of castle then placed Disney princess figurines on board and cake. My daughter absolutely loved it.
Every year, I'll make Princess cakes for my daughters. But this year, my eldest (7 yrs old) & youngest (1 yr old) daughters' birthday fall on the same date and month. I decided to make a big Homemade Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my angels.
As usual I love to use premix cake "Betty Crocker". I used 1 box for the base and another one box for the 2nd and round cake. For the frosting cream, I used vanilla/almond buttercream. The towers, I used wafer cup cones and ice-cream cones coated with melted white chocolate. A heart shaped marshmallow on top of the tower and as for windows too. As for the rail, I used pretzel all around the base cake. A wafer biscuit for the door and some candy chocolate around the base. I also printed out princesses and glued on the hard board and used toothpicks as a stand and stick into the cake.
My eldest and her friends plus their mummies are surprised to see this beautiful castle. Everyone said "wow" and I'm so proud of myself as this is the 1st biggest castle cake I ever made!
I made this Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my friend's daughter. It was her 3rd birthday and she loves all things girly. So I decided to try my hand at the castle cake. I made a square and a round Madeira cake which I placed one on top of the other. I covered in white icing and just built the cake up from there. All is edible.
I have learned a few things whilst making this cake which will hopefully make my next castle much more efficient.
