This princess castle cake was for a friend's 21st birthday.
The cake was one large square cake, 1 other large cake (I used a round tin), and 1 loaf tin. The square cake was the base of the cake. I then cut eight round circles from the other large cake and sandwiched these together in twos and put in the four corners for the turrets. The loaf cake was cut onto 4 and the pieces put between the turrets to make the walls. All was stuck together and then covered in pink butter icing.
Decoration: Turrets were ice cream cones covered in fondant icing which I'd added some pink colour and sugar glitter to. The ramparts are pink and white marshmallows topped with silver balls. The windows, portcullus, drawbridge, name and numbers were all done with dark chocolate (melted, the "painted" onto baking paper, put in fridge to set, then peeled off and stuck to cake with small amount icing). Vines were done with green writing icing for stems, with angelica for leaves and sugar flowers.
Scenery: tray covered in silver foil. Moat blue water icing, grass coconut (put dessicated coconut into plastic bag, add small drop food colouring and shake to cover it. Stick down with small amount green water icing.) Monster, princess and ducks all moulded out of fondant icing. Candles stuck in dolly mix and stuck to grass with icing.
This Princess Castle Cake was made for my daughter Tayla on her 4th birthday, September 2008. She loves to dress up as a princess and all year was asking for a castle cake.
The cake was a 10inch round white mud cake. I covered the cake with white butter cream and sprinkled the cake with edible glitter. For the pillars I used a castle making kit and covered the cone tops with mauve colour butter cream and then rolled them in mauve coloured sprinkles.
I then piped around the windows and doorways using the mauve coloured butter cream. I then added small silk flowers all around the doorways on the window sills and around the outside of the cake. I used green coloured butter cream for the grass effect and a plastic Barbie figurine to add to the decoration.
Not a hard cake to make, but looks effective for any little princess.
My mom and I decided to make this princess castle cake for my cousin's fourth birthday. This was our first try. It took about ten hours, but I'm sure the next one will be faster and look a lot better now that we know what we are doing. We used four pounds of confectioners' sugar and it still could have used more frosting. The bottom cake was made from scratch but the castle is boxed pound cake and that saved us some time because we were just tired of mixing all that frosting. We combined ideas from this and other websites. And the hardest thing was finding the princess decorations. In the end we think this is a pretty cute cake.
I made this princess castle cake for my little niece's first birthday. It's a 3 layer cake with strawberry cream filling. I had fondant for the hole cake because it's a lot smother and easy to work with. The round cones are paper towel rolls that I had saved.
The pink cones on the top are made from ice-cream cones that I covered with gum paste as well as the door. The stones are just some candy I found that looked like stones. For the blue and green on the base I just used colored butter cream that I just piped on. The little figures I bought form eBay for only $10, such a great deal.
