I made this Homemade Castle Birthday Cake Design for my daughter's 4th birthday. She loves princesses and wanted a castle cake. I looked all over and found the most ideas from all the different castles on this website. It's all ideas and everyone seems to be good at something and everyone looks like they really wanted to make the cake for someone. That's the important thing!
The bottom level is 2 yellow cakes with basic vanilla butter cream in between and covered with fondant from marshmallows and powdered sugar. top round level is orange cake two high with the same vanilla butter creme and covered in the same pink fondant.
The towers I definitely got from this site and cooked the bottoms with the orange cake in them to add weight then chocolate dipped them to prevent moisture from the cake from making them soggy! Dipped the tops in chocolate as well and rolled in sprinkles. I think most of the towers on this site were that way and they turned out good. I used a couple pieces of dowel rod to secure the towers to the cake. Chocolate bar for the door and steps to the front door and then threw down a few rows of blue icing for the moat and to set off the pink color of the castle.
My daughter loved it and everyone at the party loved the look and devoured the cake! Thanks to coolest-birthday-cakes.com for such a great repository of ideas!
This Castle Birthday Cake Design was my first cake I ever made in any kind of detail. It was a lot of fun, I just wish I had more time because I had a lot more detail in mind for it I just ran out of time on the big day!
The cake was homemade and very yummy as was the buttercream icing. I made the towers ahead of time out of ice cream cones and fondant. It was pretty easy and I left the fondant a little thick so that it would get nice and hard. I didn't even need dowel rods for the for bottom ones because they just stood on their own! I dipped the peaks in pink chocolate and then brushed them with shimmery dust I found at the craft store (edible).
I used sugar cubes for the top of the cake which was easy and worked out pretty well. I used fondant for the flowers, windows, towers, and door. The rest of the decor was piped butter cream.
I had vines on the bottom, but the green is a little light on the picture. Next time I would make it darker. I also had ideas for more flowers, butterflies, and piped pumpkins (Cinderella theme) but ran out of time. For quick added decorations I sprinkled some heart candy on top of the cake and everyone was VERY impressed and loved the cake!
This Castle Birthday Cake Design is a double chocolate cake with buttercream icing. My mother and I made this 3-D castle cake for two sweet little girls; one loves pink and the other loves purple, we decided to combine the two colors and some other ones.
We also added chocolate ganache filling in between the layers and used Rice Krispie treats for the towers, fondant flags and trim, Hersey's chocolate with almonds for the front castle doors, Hershey's plain chocolate for the windows, and KitKat for the draw bridge with Twizzlers stings for the rope. Swedish Fish was used in the water.
For the sand, we used brown sugar. Lastly, the tops of the towers are sugar cones with pink crystals.

I made this cake for my niece and nephew,they are twins. I wanted to keep it girlie and manly at the same time. So this is what I came up with the top castle is purple for my niece and the bottom is manly for my nephew. The trees are cupcakes covered in green butter-cream frosting, I just used a large tip. My brother in law made a wood stand for me. I used the Winston castle pattern for the cake, I added flowers. It was a great hit!!!
