I prepared four 8" square cakes for this Princess Castle Birthday Cake. U then cut off the dome of each cake layer to create a flat even surface. Place the first cake layer on a serving platter.
I made Buttercream frosting (pink). Using a spatula, spread about 1/3 cup of pink frosting over the top of the cake layer. Invert the second cake layer and place on top of the frosted cake. Spread another 1/3 cup of pink frosting on top of the cake.
Invert the third cake layer and place on top of frosted cake. Push down on the cake to make sure the cake layers are level and stable. Using the serrated knife, cut the fourth layer into four quarters.
Spread a small dollop of pink frosting in the middle of the layered cake. Lay one of the quarters on top. Spread frosting on top of the quarter and place a second quarter on that. Again, spread pink frosting on the top and lay the third quarter on top of the second one.
Cut the last quarter into quarters again. Make a third tier on the cake. Spread frosting on the top layer. Place one of the small remaining pieces on top. Repeat with another layer of frosting and another small remaining piece of cake.
Frost the entire cake and decorated with candies and wafers for doors and windows.
My elder daughter asked for a Princess Belle birthday cake for her 3rd birthday. After scouting round on the internet, I came to this site and, taking into consideration my very novice level of baking and decorating, I decided to try and 'bake and build' a castle cake for her.
It was our first and biggest project ever; it took us three days from start to finish, working mainly when both girls were asleep, and we were really happy with the outcome. Not only did the look on our little girl's face say it all, as well as her endless expressions of thanks for making such a beautiful princess cake, but also the gasps of awe and compliments from our guests made it all worth it!
The base of this cake was a rich and moist chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and frosting. The round cakes were a strawberry with cream cheese filling and frosting, and a chocolate with cream cheese frosting. The whole cake was decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant.
The castle turrets were made of ice-cream cones, both sugar and waffle, dipped in melted and coloured white chocolate and then covered with sprinkles. To stick the parts together, royal icing was used with silver balls added for deco. Princess stickers were glued onto bamboo skewers and stuck onto tinted white chocolate-dipped marshmallows.
For this Princess Castle Birthday Cake I used 3 boxes of cake mix (yellow, strawberry and funfetti). 1 - 13.9 for the bottom; 3 - 8x8 square for second tier; for third tier I cut a 8x8 square into 4 and used 3 squares. I used strawberry icing from the store.
The towers are sugar cones and cake cones. I cut off the end of the sugar cones so that I could fit the star wands in them. I coated the sugar cones with icing and rolled in colored sugar sprinkles. For the sides and top towers I cut the top of cake cones and put an upside down sugar cone on top. I piped white icing around the bottom of each.
The door and windows are strawberry wafer cookies. I cut one into for the windows and piped white icing around all of them. I used miniature marshmallows around the edge of top and sides. I used food coloring and dyed the white icing for the flowers. Two pink gumballs by the doors. Everyone loved this cake. It was made for my niece's 6th birthday.
