I had seen a few pictures of the fairy tale castle cake and thought that I'd never be able to put this cake together myself but it wasn't too bad. I just put some glitter in a little vodka and painted it onto the castle topper. Others I'd seen had been done in food colouring but these looked patchy. Just doing it in glitter gave a perfect finish.
I used lilac for the turretts and pink for the rest and just edged the doors and windows in gold glitter. I put some diamante pins in the top of the turretts to finish it off and a couple of small hand made roses at the side of the opening. I made and covered two different sized round cakes in marzipan and white sugarpaste icing and then over the bottom layer I put over a 2nd piece of pre-rolled and pre-cut 8" icing so it didn't cover the cake but gave a frilled effect. I then made 21 small roses in pale pink, pale lilac and white and stuck them onto the precut icing inbetween the "frills". The hardest part was covering the gap between the top cake and the castle as this didn't sit flat enough. Lastly I put 3 pale pink and white feathers at the back and a Happy Birthday on the front.
Every body loved the Castle Birthday Cake and a couple of people have asked me to do it for their daughters too. I used the large castle topper as the small one was just too small.
This Castle birthday cake was for a young lady who loves Scotland and all of it's history. She graduated grade 12 and it seemed fitting to do a castle cake.
The cake topper was styro foam and covered with rock stamped fondant. The towers were paper towel rolls covered with rock stamped fondant. I made the windows and doors and crafted flowering ivy to drape down the wall.
The water was colored blue and made of marscapone frosting. The rock in which the castle is situated on is all chocolate cake! It is secured by wooden dowels and was a challenge to deliver!
I wanted my 5 year old to have a Castle Birthday Cake Design, and wanted to make it. This was the biggest cake project I've ever done.
I made my own buttercream icing (also another 1st) and dyed it pink. I took 8 regular ice cream cones and dipped them in melted dyed almond bark....and I did the same for the 5 sugar cones. I used some of the leftover melted almond bark for the princess. I took pink marsh mellows and sprinkles to finish it off.
I used the Wilton Castle cake kit (which I love) to make this Castle Birthday Cake Design. It was for a little girl's 1st birthday. It was a chocolate cake with Snickers filling covered in homemade marshmellow fondant. I used the Duff brick pattern sheet ( I bought them at Michaels) which work great to make the brick pattern. Gum paste flowers and accents finished it off.
It was a lot of fun to make and a huge success at the party.
I made this Homemade Castle Birthday Cake Design for a friend at work. The cake is chocolate cake, the towers are crispy cake and is all covered in fondant icing.
The towers are icecream cones rolled in butter icing then rolled in sparkly pink glitter. The green leaves and flowers are painted on with food colouring. That is great to cover any mistakes with the fondant icing.
This Castle Birthday Cake Design is over 3 foot tall. It consists of 2, 2 layer cakes. Each turret is made from cut and stacked ice cream cones with pointed cones inverted on top. The entire cake is embellished with fondant.
