I made this Castle Cake for my goddaughter's fourth birthday. The first thing I did was bake the bottom cake layers for the castle. I made them in a 10 inch square pan. I needed three layers to achieve the correct height of 5 inches.
It was a hazelnut sponge cake recipe from the Godiva website. Very delicious, but time consuming to make.

Next I repeated the above process in an 8 inch square pan for the smaller cake. After cooling and assembling the layers with hazelnut ganache filling, I iced them with homemade buttercream icing.

I tinted the fondant pink, rolled it out and used a plastic impression mat (rock textured) to create the castle look. Then covered both cakes in it. I randomly selected rocks and covered them with pink petal dusk to add sparkle and dimension.
Add a fondant edge cut like a castle roof and attach with a little water.

The rocks are edible chocolate candies from Wal-Mart. The towers are sugar and cake ice cream cones covered in royal icing and sprinkles. I used dowels to hold them up on the cake. The frog was free formed by my husband. The princess' dress is a large cupcake turned upside and covered in fondant with a plastic doll pick inserted.

The additional flower designs were added with buttercream icing and various tips. The crown was cut from fondant covered in silver petal dust to add sparkle and edible marker was used to write the birthday girl's name and age.

My daughter is a Princess, or at least we like to think so. So what does every Princess need? A Castle birthday cake! And the more pink...THE BETTER!

The cake looks like it took some time to put together, but really it wasn't. We used a Hersey bar for the door and bridge, ice cream cones for the towers and just had a ball!

She was so excited with her cake she's asked us to make them for the rest of her birthdays!

I learnt how to make this Castle Cake on a course that I went on. It took hours to complete, but I think it was worth the effort!

The main castle and turrets are all edible, and some of the turrets were cooked in baked bean cans and the other were muffins stacked on top of each other.
