Princess Caroline's Castle Birthday Cake

Princess Caroline's Castle Birthday Cake

I made this castle birthday cake for my daughter Caroline's 3rd birthday. She asked for a princess party and what, princess doesn't deserve a castle cake, especially your own little princess. So I started by coming to this website and looking at all the cakes here and got some great ideas from all the cakes.

I started 3 days before her party. First I took cake cones and sugar cones and dipped them in white melted chocolate and rolled the sugar cones in pink sugar sprinkles. The next day I made the cakes, a double layer 12" and double layer 9" round cakes in strawberry mix. It took 4 boxes.

I also make Royal Icing flowers, that took some time but saved time while decorating the cake. On the day before her party I was ready to decorate. I stacked the cakes and frosted them, then I stacked the cones and then I added the pink dots around the cake and cones for decoration.

I took mini marshmallows and shook them in a bag with edible pink sprinkles and then lined them around the castle and put them on top of the cones. I used a Hershey's Bar for the door and walk way and lined the door with M&M's and the walk way with Pez.

I made a vine going up the cones as well as the front of the castle and then added the Royal Icing flowers and leaves. I added the princesses and then I was done! Believe it or not this was my first ever cake like this, I usually just do plan rectangle cakes and this was so much fun!

Ice Cream Cones Tips!
by: Nicole

I stuck them on to some frosting on the board and then stacked them putting more frosting between each one. then I put the deco frosting around them just to make sure, they held up pretty good. Just don't refrigerate after dipping in the chocolate, they started to crack form being cold, they dry pretty fast so you can do it the same day!

Beautiful cake!

This is really a beautiful cake! Did you finish this the day before you needed it and just let it sit on your counter? I don't have a freezer large enough to freeze the finished product. Thanks!

Figurines
by: Grace

Where did you get those figurines? I am having a party and those are the EXACT characters I need. Also, how much for each, or was it a set?

Thanks :)

I finished the cake the night before and put a cardboard box over it to absorb any moisture!

I actually found the figurines on Disneystore.com, they came as a set, I believe they were around $13 or so!

My son wanted a knights and castles birthday party when he turned 5. I spent some time looking at pictures on the internet and then combined the best ideas to make this Castle Birthday Cake.

I used a 9x12 for the bottom and a circle pan for the top layer. At the corners and at the top are 5 cupcakes (I used metallic liners for a sparkly look). I outlined the "moat" using some kind of chocolate covered graham cookie. The "water" is edible blue sparkles from the craft store.

The frosting is just buttercream that I dyed a light brown. The drawbridge is made from a chocolate bar and licorice. The windows are made out of white chocolate bars. The square chocolates are Hershey Treasures and each of the cupcakes has a sugar ice cream cone on it.

I piped on the windows (on the cones) with those little tubes and made the flags with toothpicks and cut up fruit roll-ups.

My son loved this and everyone was quite impressed.

I have been doing cakes for years now, but find doing 3D a bit of a task. I was requested to try doing a Castle Birthday Cake for someone, and was happy with the result.

All done in buttercream and the doors and windows worked in gum paste. Used marshmallows for pathway, and ice cream cones for the top. Also used wafer squares dipped in glace icing for edging

I got this idea for a Castle Birthday Cake from the Wilton Cake Book. I just changed the colors and added my own touch. Part kit you buy at Michaels, the other is all cake.

The toppers I covered in icing the blue dust. And to hold everything is place I used melting chocolate.
