This Pink princess castle cake was for my 4 year old niece Martha who was having a Princess and Pirate party. I get a lot of ideas from this website and love browsing the designs - they really are the coolest!

I used chocolate swirl sponge for this cake, using a rectangle baking pan for the bottom layer and a small 6" circle for the top. I decided it would like more like a fort this way and the turrets wouldn't look too out of place. I used white fondant with red gel color for the main icing. I'm new with fondant (this is my 3rd cake using it) and I cant seem to get it smoothed or tucked in but other wise I'm happy with how it turned out.

I cut little troughs in the icing so that the "turrets" sat flat and "glued" them in place with butter cream (when it was done I put the whole thing in the fridge so it went hard). I added details using different colored icing and brown paper for a castle door. The "bushes" are colored butter cream with shop bought sugar flowers.

For the crown I used a cookie cutter on some left over pink fondant, brushed it wet with plain water and used loads of edible glitter. I then propped it up with some more fondant. It was dried separately and put on last with the candles. I also did some chocolate cupcakes with home made cocktail stick jolly roger flags.

When I arrived at the party with this cake dressed as Snow White my niece Martha was thrilled. I think I might just be the best Aunty ever.

I made this birthday cake for my 4 year old daughter's birthday. This is pretty simple to make, if you can bake a cake you can make this castle.

To make, you will need a total of 4 baked cakes size 9x9 square (minimum of 2 boxed mixes, baked according to box directions). Once cooled, take one of the cakes, wrap and place in the freezer for at least 2 hrs (this makes it so much easier to cut and build the top layer, really fresh cake can easily crumble).

Cut the 3 layers tops off, so you have 3 even layers. Ice and stack all three layers together to make the bottom of the castle. Take the 4th layer out of the freezer and remove the top to make an even layer, cut into 4 equal pieces. Ice and layer 3 pieces in the center of the 3 large layers. With the last 1/4 pc of cake cut this into 4 more equal squares, ice and layer 3 pieces in the center of the 3 medium layers. Ice the whole cake to ensure there is no more cake showing (place a wooden kabob all the way through the center of the homemade pink Princess castle cake to keep it stable).

Take 5 sugar ice cream cones, cover in icing then sprinkles, place 4 iced cones on the 4 top corners of the large layer, and the last cone will go on the direct top of the cake. Decorate as needed, using chocolate for doors and windows, candy to decorate.

An of course decorate with Princess Characters….

I used regular icecream cones and sugar cones for the castle corners and for the base cake I used a 13x9 cake cut in half.

For the top of the Princes Castle Birthday Cake I used a Pyrex circle dish and the top of a regular cone with sugar cone top. The banner and the flags I made on my computer.
