My princess wanted a Princess Castle Birthday Cake for her 3rd birthday and how can a mum say no to such a request. I started off by baking a large rectangular cake that I used as a base. I then baked another 2 same sized square cakes that I placed on top of each other.
Next I baked another cake, this time a round one that I placed right on top. Four tiny muffins served as towers for my castle cake. Ice-cream cones dipped in icing sugar and coated in 100s & 1000s brightly coloured sprinkles gave a finishing touch to the towers.
I used ready made icing paste to cover and decorate all the cakes. Of course the main colours had to be lilac and baby pink, fit for a little princess! I decorated the cake with flower-shaped marshmallows. I placed tiny Disney princess dolls around the castle - we ordered these from eBay and they arrived right on the day I was setting up the cake, this was a huge surprise for our daughter and indeed made her birthday a special one.
TIP - ideally you bake cakes in advance and freeze them so on the day you are assembling the cake you just have to worry about decorating it. I promise it is easy to make. I loved preparing mine and the look on your daughter's face will be the greatest reward you'll get for preparing the cake. Enjoy!

I made this Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. She had a Disney Princess theme party. The cake was 3 layers on the bottom and 2 for the top. I rolled store bought ice cream cones in frosting and then rolled them in edible pink glitter sugar.
The door and windows are made out of wafer cookies with frosting for definition. I also bought colored marshmallows for the border. I bought sugar cubes to give it more of a castle effect. They added quite a bit of definition and made the cake look more squared off which was a good thing.
My husband made the flags out of pink craft paper and tooth picks. The cake was a strawberry with butter cream frosting. I baked the cakes ahead of time and froze them. This made icing them a bit easier. I bought the Disney Princess figurines at a party store.
The cake came together pretty well. My daughter loved it and most everyone though I bought it.
This Princess Castle Birthday Cake was my first attempt at making a cake. I thought I would give it ago. I was confident in my cake making but not my decorating. I made a simple Madeira sponge mix but I separated the mixture into two and added pink dye to half then when I put it in the tin I swirled it to give it a marble effect.
I used a large roasting tin for the bottom and then a loaf tin for the top then I sliced them through the middle and added jam in then covered them in pink icing. I cheated a little and brought the ready rolled stuff and just added pink dye.
For the towers I used ice cream cones covered in white chocolate with a little pink dye then lots of glittery bits to make it sparkle. I think I did okay for my first attempt. The icing was a little rough but I'll learn foe next time.
This Peppa Pig Princess Castle Birthday Cake was made for a friend's 2nd birthday. It was my first attempt at making a birthday cake and I thought it came out quite good. The cake is made from 2 cakes to create the main castle and then has 7 torrents covered in edible glitter.
The cake also sits on grass made from colouring coconut. I finished it with some Peppa pig figures.
