My daughter decided she had to have a princess Castle Birthday Cake for her fourth birthday. I had made a few cakes decorated like her favorite cartoon characters, that she just loved! I Googled cakes for an idea of where to start.
When I found this site I fell in love! I enjoy making cakes and learning new things. I took a few of the tips and applied them in my castle. The one thing I've found that I love is the Wilton color mist, saved time by not having to mix colors and matching, if not enough.
Other totally cool product was the Disney Princess desert decals, used them for the windows, Mike and Ike candies for the top round. This was a huge hit with my girls and all the kids enjoyed the look, all the parents couldn't believe I made it myself.
Cakes are two 13x9. One cut in half, two 8 inch rounds with an 1.5 inch sliver taken off the back end, top is a 6 inch cake topper. Ice cream cones, wafer cookies, sugar decals!
I had a friend who wondered if I would make her niece a birthday cake, since I love to make cakes, of course I said yes. This cake is a combination of many designs and what I thought looked good. The bottom cake is a rectangle 2 layer sheet cake and the top layer is a 6in 2 layer circle cake.
The top tower is made out of rice krispie and then covered in fondant. The side towers are PVC pipe and covered in fondant. The tops of the towers were sugar cones covered in fondant and then painted with watered down lemon juice to make them shine. The whole cake was first covered in butter cream and then covered with homemade fondant.
The windows and doors were fondant and the flowers, leaves, and vines were made from royal icing. The flags on the towers were made from fondant allowed to dry. My friend added Princess' at the birthday party.
Overall I think it turned out great, especially since it was just my second fondant covered cake.
This is a Castle Birthday Cake I made a few years back. Used the house cake pan for the main part of the castle, sugar cones to make the top of the towers and trees and multi colored candy wafers to shingle the roof and the windows in the castle. I used the string pearl beading around towers and door frame. If I remember correctly the drawbridge is just brown frosting.
The castle is frosted with regular royal white frosting. The trees was a special egg white whites and cream of tartar (it's in the Wilton book). You have to let those dry to harden before setting into place but great effect.
Well that is pretty much it. My daughter loved it. She is now 11 and the cakes she request are more difficult!
I did this Castle birthday cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday! It was very time consuming...yet totally worth every minute!!
We started with 5 rectangle cake pans, iced double layers and cut to make the castle. Then I used ice cream cones(about 22), putting then end to end using fluff between and dipped them in white chocolate a skewered them to the cake. I used sugar cones for the top of the towers.
I used colored sugar to decorate the top of the sugar cones. Tiny marshmallows decorated the top of the cake making a balcony. I used a fruit coll up for the banner and writing. Top it all off with Sparkler candles and there you have it...The Coolest Castle Cake!!
This Castle Birthday Cake is a very simple castle to make. I used two boxed cake mixes and prepared 2 9x13 cakes and layered. I used Wilton buttercream frosting to frost the cake. Towers are made of ice cream cones "glued" together end to end with white chocolate. Waffle cones were covered in melted white chocolate and sprinkles put on.
I frosted the regular cones to help blend in with the "building". Pumpkins are made from candy peanuts and sour apple rings.
