I wanted a really pretty cake for my daughter's 1st birthday and bravely decided to make it my self!! This is my Fairy Castle Cake. I used a 10 inch Madeira for the bottom and an 8 inch chocolate for the top. The towers are made of Swiss rolls and the turrets ice cream cones! I melted boiled sweets to make the stained glass windows! Thanks Heston!

I used ready to roll icing and writing icing and hired the tins etc. This cost approx £60 all in and took me roughly 6 hours to make. Being my first cake I was really happy with the results! It's just a shame that we had planned a BBQ and on the day, it rained! Hence the cake went stale as I didnt want to cut it for 4 people!! Never mind! It still looked good 2 weeks later when we did manage the BBQ!

I have been bombing around the internet looking at all these beautiful cakes trying to come up with an idea for my daughters age 7 and * birthday. (they are 1 day exactly from being a year apart. My version of making a cake is mixing it up leaving it in the pan and putting icing and sprinkles on it and there it is. You guys make it look so easy and have wonderful ideas. I have been combining everyone's ideas together and made a sketch of my own. I have never even heard of fondant let alone use it and I'm glad I watched you tube and seen they have cardboard and skewers in between the cakes other wise I know I woulda flopped. Anyway you did an amazing job and I hope ours turns out as well as your. Probably won't be as pretty but I figure at this age they will remember it for the rest of their lives even if it is a flop. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and take care!

I made this for my daughter's 9th Birthday - she was big into fairies! This was a large tall cake that I made in sponge. The pillars were made by stacking sponge discs onto each other over wooden BBQ skewers and ice cram cones for the towers dusted blue. I added flags to the tops but not shown here !

The best part of this homemade fairy castle cake was the musical element !! I ripped open an old jewelery box with a fairy that played swan lake. I built this inside the cake and if you look at the castle door I made this the winder. A few turns and the fairy on top spun round and played swan lake from inside the fairy castle cake (I mounted the mechanism inside a plastic box first).... I was pleased with the result and so was my daughter and all her friends !

This Fairy Castle Birthday Cake was for a friend's little girl who loves anything pink and sparkly.
I used a 9 inch round cake, made my own pastilage to make the towers.

Everything was edible except the board it sat on.
Rice paper flags, ice cream cones, chocolate buttons and edible glitter on the doors and windows.
I made the cake sparkly using lustre dust.

A friend of a friend contacted me and asked me to make a Fairy Castle Cake for her daughter's 4th birthday. She gave me a link to a video she's seen on you tube which I watched a few times and decided to try and copy. Well, it worked! And the birthday girl was thrilled! I can't wait to make this one again!

How I Made It!
by: Farrah

Hi Anon! I made this using a hexagonal cake tin and a circular tin. I covered each cake and stacked them, then rolled a thick tube if fondant that I cut into threes for the towers before colour ing icing and rolling into spears for turrets. You can also cover ice cream cones! I uses rolled fondant for rocks, doors etc and a small leaf/petal cutter for the vine leaves and a tiny flower cutter for blossoms. My inspiration actually came from a YouTube video of how to make a castle cake. I can't find the same link now - it was over 2 years ago - but there are still plenty of awesome step by step videos you can follow!! Good luck and have fun! This was one of my first ever cakes - and if I can do it - you can too!!! x

This Fairy castle cake was a cake I made after 5 years of starting to decorate cakes. It was for my granddaughter's 5th birthday. I am still doing this as a hobby 10 years later.
