I made this Castle Birthday Cake for a friend of my daughter's little girl's third birthday. As it had to travel, I dowelled the towers which were plastic rolls covered with glycerin icing, and ice cream cones for the tops.

I split an 8inch butter Madeira sponge cake and filled it with jam and cream. Then crumb coated the whole cake with buttercream and 2 layers of fondant. I decorated the castle with windows, flowers and ivy leaves made from gumpaste and sprinkled the whole cake with lustre dust, then added a princess which I bought from the supermarket (as my previous attempts at modeling a princess have been laughable!).

I was pleased with the end product, and it traveled well. The birthday girl was thrilled with it, and her mum said it was "magical". Hope you like it.

I baked one 9x13 cake and two 8inch round cakes. I put the two round cakes on top of the 9x13, using frosting between each to help make them hold. I refrigerated the whole thing for about an hour to make sure things wouldn't be moving, and to speed up the cooling process so that I could start frosting it.

Once cooled, frosted with whipped supreme frosting, then used pink, white, and purple fondant to complete the details. I also cut out small holes in the corners of the 9x13 and put small ice cream cones in them. I frosted them to give the 'tower' effect. I used lots of edible glitter, and edible sparkles to make it shine!

My four year old LOVED this Castle Birthday Cake!

This year I thought "right I'm going to make a cake and do something different" so I chose a fairy castle cake ,as my daughter is 3 and loves princesses and fairies. It wasn't to hard to make and I got great satisfaction from it when finished.

Basically it is made up of butter icing(coloured), ice cream cones for the towers, ice cream wafers for the gates, dessicated coconut(coloured) for the grass, and mini Swiss rolls for the towers with marshmallows on top.

It went down a treat,everybody loved it!

I used two boxes of cake mix for this castle cake. The bottom layer is actually two layers, and the top layer is just made from a loaf pan.

I made the icing myself from shortening, and powdered sugar and a little hot pink food coloring. The towers are just made of regular ice cream cones dipped in white chocolate, and the tops of them are just waffle cones that I iced and put sprinkles on.

This cake took about three hours to complete.

I prepared this Homemade Castle Birthday Cake based on a Wilton romantic castle cake idea. What I did was I covered the towers in Royal Icing and used coarse sanding sugar to give the towers the beautiful texture.

I used buttercream icing on the rest of the cake and created vines on it. I created the forget me not's out of a 50/50 fondant gum paste mixture.

The cake was a resounding hit with Mia.

I used the Wilton castle cake pan and decorated this castle cake with buttercream icing colored with pink and purple gel coloring.

This (along with the Snow White cake previously submitted) was my first attempt at cake decorating so I am fully aware that they are not the best! But I hope to get better with time and practice!

The flowers on the cake and cupcakes are candy from a store bought decorating kit.

I made a Castle Birthday Cake for a friend`s daughter`s 4th birthday party. I used Italian meringue buttercream frosting that I have learned from video tutorials. The towers are made out ice cream cones I dipped in melted chocolates and piped vines using tip 104 for the leaves and flowers. The girl just loved it.

The grass was the cake. The rest of the castle cake was Styrofoam covered with icing and painted with an air gun. I used the towers from the castle cake kit.
