For my daughter's second birthday I decided to have a Princess and Pirate themed birthday. I was going to order the cake but decided to bake a Princess Castle Birthday Cake instead.
I found the perfect castle set from Wilton and that's the one I used. I used a special recipe of a traditional Puerto Rican cake which is moisten with Amaretto and decorated with buttercream icing. The flowers on the borders were made a week before with Wilton ready to use Gum paste.
The bottom tier is a 12" round cake and 2 tier is an 8" round cake. Since it is my first time making a special cake like this one it took me almost 2 days to complete.
The cake was a total hit at the party. Everyone asked where did I buy it and how much did I pay for such a beautiful cake? They were surprised to learn that I baked it and decorated it myself.
I am very proud of the final product and can't wait to make another one!
Comments for Coolest Princess Castle Birthday Cake 329
I had a lot of fun making this Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my daughters. I got the idea by looking at a lot of other pictures of castle cakes on this website.
I covered the cake in MMF, with a recipe I found on YouTube. The ground was rolled out green MM fondant, covered in green colored coconut. The roses and diamonds were made with the MMF. I frosted ice cream cones and rolled them in colored sugar.
The water is rolled out blue MM fondant, and then I had gummy fish and frogs added. I also found some candy rocks that I added to the water. The ledge on the first cake is made with tiny marshmallows and gummy candies. The drawbridge was made with graham crackers and the "ropes" were made by rolling white MM fondant around wooden skewers.
It was a lot of work, but so worth it to see the looks on my girls faces. I don't know how I will top myself this year.
Homemade Belle And Her Princess Castle Birthday Cake
This was a Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my daughters 3rd birthday. The little Belle was made using a Belle cake topper I got online. The bottom of the dress is made using the Wilton wonder pan.
The castle is the Wilton castle. Two 8" cakes for the bottom layer and 2 6" cakes for the top layer. The roof of the castle was made using fondant dyed pink and rolled into balls and then flattened out to look like shingles. I glued them together using a bit of water.
The cake was iced with butter cream ( recipe at wilton.com) and the vines were piped on (the info for required tips & piping techniques can be found at wilton.com or youtube). I bought my supplies at Micheals.
This Princess Castle Birthday Cake came about from a lot of research on this site and amalgamated a few design ideas which grew as I was decorating the cake.
Essentially a large square cake with a round cake placed on top with a Swiss roll cut in half, all iced in ready roll icing. The turrets were made from wafer icecream cones inverted, with a third waffle cone placed on top. I coated these with regal icing dipped in sherbet.
From there I just went to town in the local sweet shop and topped off with sparkly balls, mini marshmallows and millions!
My Daughter loved this cake on her 4th birthday as did her 30 friends at her party, their faces made it all worth while!!
