I wanted to surprise my daughter for her 4th birthday! I made a Princess Castle Cake and she was speechless. I made 6 layers in total of cake and we only ate 2 layers. The bottom two layers are regular rectangular cakes and then 9" rounds for the middle layers and the 8" rounds for the top two layers. Lots of butter cream icing in between each layer. Then I covered it all with pink icing.
I used regular ice cream cones dipped in white chocolate. I put in the freezer for the chocolate to set up faster and well be careful on taking them out of the freezer, my first set fell on the floor and shattered. I used wafer cookies in between the water (which is just blue icing) and the grass (which is just green sparkles on some white icing.) Added a few little extras and there is my master piece!
Thank you everyone who made similar cakes all the ideas were great! I'm just glad I have a year to plan for the next cake which my family can't wait for.
I made this Princess Castle Cake for my daughter's 4th birthday party. It's the first time I have attempted something like this but thanks to this site I found loads of ideas.
The bottom two tiers are made from Victoria sponge and the top is chocolate (for my chocaholic son). I cut semi-circles out of the bottom tier (before icing) to accommodate the turrets.
All tiers were iced in pink fondant and I used dowels to support the tiers. I used 5 kitchen roll tubes cut to size for the pillars and iced them in the same fondant. I then took 5 wafer cones, iced them in pink buttercream and rolled them in pink sugar (made by mixing a little red food colouring with granulated sugar). I stuck them on the top of the pillars with more buttercream.
Next I piped on details in the same buttercream. Finally I used Dr Oetker "writing icing" for the vines and flowers because I didn't have a thin enough nozzle to pipe them on.
My daughter loved her princess castle cake and I loved making it!
I was asked to do a princess castle cake for precious little girl turning 4 years old.
Inspiration for this cake came from other castle cakes I saw on this site as well off other sites on the internet. I love using Google image for my searches.
The frame and the princess characters came in a kit I bought online. The kit also came with plastic parts for the towers, but I liked the idea of using ice cream cones instead.
The cakes were covered and decorated with Wilton buttercream frosting. I used fondant to cover the ice cream cones. I also made royal icing flowers a couple days in advance, and when they dried I placed them all over the cake. Finally, I anchored the round cake to the square base cake with a wooden dowel.
I was told it was a big hit, which makes me happy!
I do cakes just for fun! I had a friend of my ask me to do a cake for her little girl’s 3rd birthday. She found the Deluxe Disney Princess cake kit online and ordered it.
The kit came with a picture and not so good directions. I went by the instructions to make the Princess Castle Cake. I wanted it to look just like the one in the picture. I had fun doing this cake, I would love to make more!
