This is a Disney Princess Castle Birthday Cake made for a little girl’s eleventh birthday. It is a two tiered cake on a single 16 inch square cake which was used for the base. The base layer was covered with green butter cream icing to resemble a grassy area. The base of the castle is constructed of two stacked fourteen inch squares. The top level of the castle is constructed of two eight inch squares.
The entire cake was covered in white fondant imprinted with a block design. The base of the towers was made from flat bottomed ice cream cones covered with white fondant imprinted with a block design. The top of the towers was made from pointed bottomed ice cream cones turned upside down and topped with a fondant ball. The windows and doors were all made from fondant. The princess’ and candles were purchased items that were added to the cake.

Having attempted to paint a flat cake (see Heffalump cake) the year before, I chose to make a 3D cake for Alice's 3rd birthday and she had insisted on a pink Castle Cake Idea. I used a square banana cake for the main castle and Swiss rolls for the towers. The shade of pink wasn't the original intention but I decided it was a change from the usual pastel pinks. The white top of the center was melted white chocolate as I wanted a hard surface to write on.
The turrets are upturned icecream cones, dipped in melted chocolate and rolled in hundreds and thousands (by far the messiest stage). I made battlements from mini marshmallows and used a writing syringe to draw the windows, door and drawbridge with melted milk chocolate. I wrote her name with icing.
It was fun to make and as usual, got demolished pretty quickly.
I've made this Castle Cake Idea a few times now. I have improved and changed the cake each time. The base is a two layer hexagon filled with buttercream, the second layer is a small round sponge also with butter cream. I wanted as much of the cake to be edible as possible so I made the towers from Swiss rolls covered in fondant with a thin doweling rod down the middle for support.
The roof of the towers are ice cream cones covered in fondant and edible glitter. The vines and flowers are coloured and piped butter cream. To give it a final magical look I sprayed it all over with a pearlized spray.
This Castle Cake Idea I made for my son's 6th birthday. It's sponge cake which I made the day before and covered in chocolate buttercream. But a few weeks before, I made the icing walls and turrets out of fondant and embossed them with a stone pattern and left them to dry. Assembly on the day was easy - simply a matter of erecting the sides and turrets and sticking with more icing.
The figures are moulded out of icing. I made the moulds with silicone gel around some playmobil figures and horses.
The pointy bits on the turrets are ice-cream cones covered in chocolate (I think I would use icing next time).
The bottom tier of this Castle Birthday Cake Design is a 2 layer 12 inch cake filled with butter-cream. The top layer is a 2 layer 6 inch also filled with butter-cream. I choose the 6 inch for the top to give plenty of room for the sugar cone towers. I smooth iced both layers and used a texture plate to add brick detail.
Everything else is piped on with butter-cream icing. The torrents are large marshmallows held on with royal icing. Just for a little extra sparkle, I added some white and pink edible glitter all over the tops of both layers.
