Gabi's Pink Castle Cake

I followed the instructions from this site on how to make a box cake more moist and yummy and it was great!! Thank you!

For this castle cake I used 1 box cake mix, 1 box instant pudding (same as cake type, chocolate cake/chocolate pudding), 1/2 cup vegetable oil,
1 cup water, 4 eggs and baked in a 350 oven for 35-45 min.

I made one square cake for the bottom and one round for the top (two boxes of choc. cake and 2 boxes choc. pudding). I put strawberries (frozen in syrup kind) and whipped cream in the middle. I frosted it with 2 cans pink strawberry frosting and 1 can white. I also added some pink sprinkles and various candies.

The spires were 5 pink plain cones and 5 regular sugar cones. I put a little white frosting and red licorice on them too. It wasn't too hard to make, but did take some time. Everyone loved it and it tasted great too!

I got the ideas for this castle cake off of this website. I used 2 9 by 13 cakes and layered them with icing in between and two 6 inch round cakes with icing in between them. I cut the cakes to make them level.

It took 3 boxes of cake mixes. One for each 9 by 13 and one for the 2 6 inch rounds and 6 cupcakes. I only used 5 cup cakes on the cake though. I made my own butter cream icing and tinted it with food colouring.

I let my daughter pick out the colours and the candy. I did a shell border around the bottom and top of the 9 by 13 cake and put candy around the round cake. I put sugar cones on top of the cupcakes to look like towers. I stuck the banner and flags in with toothpicks.

My daughter absolutely loved this cake!

I made a full sheet castle cake with two mixes. Then, on one end put a 9" cardboard (covered with glad wrap) cake support. I put four dowels through holes in the support and then lowered two 9" sq layers onto the dowels. Each 9' layer was a full cake mix so they would be thick.

I frosted the entire cake with pink. The lattice fence and door are done with royal icing made 2 days before so it could harden. Turrets are ice cream cones, flat bottom and cone shaped, rolled in crystal sugar.

After installing the turrets comes the landscaping. I made grass grow all around and did Camellia bushes by the door. The swan is also royal icing and the draw bridge is purchased Mexican cookies. I sprinkled crystal sugar on tops of both sections.

The princesses are figures belonging to the birthday girl.

I made this Castle cake for a friend's daughter's 1st birthday party. I baked a 12 inch and an 8 inch vanilla pound cake. Each of cake was filled with white chocolate ganache.

For the bottom layer, I used pink butter cream icing with tiny white flowers and for the top, white butter cream icing, with tip 2 dots. For the bottom of turrets, I used white fondant icing wrapped around hidden pillars and for the top, I used tinted pink fondant and wrapped it with that swirling effect. I then used silver dragees to compete the turret.

Princess Bell candles and figurines were used to complete the cake and white cake lustre sprinkled all over the cake for a sparkling effect when the candle was lit.

This is my second cake made for my child's 4th birthday. This Castle Cake is a sponge cake with vanilla frosting made with butter and Crisco and the small balls are made of fondant.

It would be perfect if fully made of fondant.
