I made a 2 tiered castle birthday cake along with a red dragon cake. The castle was 3 8" round yellow cakes on bottom, with 2 6" round yellow cakes on top. I used icecream cones dipped in chocolate on top of the cupcakes stacked on the 6" tier and stuck my candles through them into the cupcakes below. I decorated it with a chocolate graham cracker door and Hershey's chocolate bars to give it the effect of stones and windows.
The dragon cake was made of chocolate cake. I used the dinosaur cake instructions from sweetdreamsbytracy homepage. I used Hershey's kisses/choc chips to do the spikes on his back. I used smashed slices of gumdrops for some scales, cut down orange slices for claws, and fruit roll ups on b-bq skewers for wings.
Both cakes were covered in buttercream frosting. I used store bought cake mixes and frosting. I used food coloring for the purple and red frosting.
I was asked to prepare a Castle Birthday Cake for a little princess. I did a normal round fruit cake and covered it in white sugarpaste. Then I took 4 white modeling paste cylinders which I had prepared the day before so that they can settle hard enough to stand and positioned them on the sides of the cake.
I used ice-cream cones for the roofs of the towers and placed some marshmallows around the roof of the fruit cake. I made the door and the windows from brown and black sugarpaste and piped the grass and flowers all over the cake. Last but not least I coloured some coconut green and used it as turf and cut some small triangles from a rice paper to do the flags on the towers.
I hope you like it. The girl did and didn't want to cut it!
This Castle Birthday Cake is a French vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. The outside is covered in rolled fondant. I took half a day off of work and was still up until 2 am finishing it. It is all eatable.
The towers are cake baked in soup cans (two layers tall) with covered ice cream cones on top. The whole cake was so big we had tons of cake left over! Use lots of dowels for support.
I made this castle birthday cake for my daughter's third birthday. We had a princess party.
In total it took 8 boxes of cake mix, homemade icing with a total of 7lbs of confectionery sugar. The cake was huge. It was a lot of fun to make but it did take a long time, probably about 35+ hours of total mixing, baking and decorating.
This Castle Birthday Cake is the first time using fondant! I loved it!
Had to add side tower at party to heavy to travel. Wanted to be able to eat the whole cake so I baked towers in cans. Mom would make a bread in a coffee can when I was young! This was a corn can, just pick your size. Great idea like a big cupcake.
