I promised my niece that I'd bake her eighth birthday cake. I showed her several pictures from Wilton's website and she made her choice: a Castle cake.
Instead of buying the Wilton princess castle cake kit, I decided to make the turrets myself with foam, lots of glue and paper for the cones. The tower and turrets were painted with edible lavender spray. The top of the turrets were covered in butter cream and had purple sprinkles added. If you notice, I used cupcake liners to complete the towers.
The cakes were one 8" chocolate with vanilla filling cake on top of one 10" vanilla cake with chocolate pudding filling. The cakes were frosted with butter cream, and covered with white fondant. There were rods on the bottom cake to support the cake on top. The little flowers on the edges were done days in advance with fondant, using Wilton's flower cutting kit. The windows and gate were all made of foam and piped with colored butter cream.
I printed the name off the computer and added four stars, made of purple butter cream, to each corner. The towers on the base were attached with butter cream; the rest have a rod attached to them and I simply stuck them to the cakes. You may notice, if you look very hard, that some are a bit crooked.
It took me almost a week to prepare and a whole day to bake and decorate the cakes. But, when my niece saw the finished product, it was all worth it.

I made This homemade castle birthday cake for my frend's 3 year old daughter. She said she wanted something special and she loved Fairies so I made this Fairy castle for her.
The tears of joy from my friend and the look on the kids faces made it even better, she never expected it to be so big. I baked 1 round chocolate cake and a larger sponge for the base. I used the Wilton's Romantic Castle cake set as the inspiration for this cake. I used the pillars, cones and windows from the kit.
The whole cake was covered in butter cream icing. I piped all the flowers and leaves on from Royal icing (3 tbl spoons Meringue powder, 4 cups Icing sugar, 6 tbl spoons Water, beat all ingredients for 7-10 min).
The cones were covered in buttercream then rolled in Raw sugar (coloured with pink food colouring then dried in the oven) and the fairy, prince and princess were from target just finished it off.
This Homemade Castle Birthday Cake was my first cake deco experience. It was done for my daughter's fifth birthday. I got most of the ideas from this website.
The cake is made of carrot walnut cake. It is a 2 1/2 recipe of a cake. I baked 3 times as I only had one tray. I tried to do the deco with cream cheese topping but could not deco properly with it so I used butter icing instead. The cake tasted even better after cooling it.
This Castle Birthday Cake is made of chocolate cakes - 2( 8in. x 12in. ) and 1( 6in. x 9in ). The sugar flowers were prepared two days before, this made of icing sugar. I prepared boiled icing for frosting.
