Construction Barn - Castle Cake

Construction Barn - Castle Cake

My grandson Warren is a truck fan, especially construction big rigs. So I designed a Construction Castle cake using the Wilton castle pieces I have on hand. I made two 9x13 layers for the base. I didn't want to have to buy a long loaf pan, so I purchased a family sized pound cake for the top.

I made construction orange icing. For the pillars, I "glued the chocolate rocks on with grey royal icing. (I did this a couple days prior.) Rice Krispy treats were the turrets, using the form from the castle kit (sprayed the inside with cooking spray). I pushed the krispy mix in tightly and let it set up a bit. You may have to urge them to come out with a table knife. Let them set for a while, then roll in melted chocolate. Set on a smooth surface to set.

I used my imagination and let it run wild. We goy him a 100 piece construction set and used part of the set to decorate the cake. I cut a bit of the top of the turret and "glued" a birthday candle to the top.

This little 4 year old was blown away! Hope you have fun - I did!

Homemade Castle Cake

Homemade Castle Cake

This castle cake was a last minute idea for my daughter's 3d birthday. I didn't have too much time to plan this cake, but it actually was not too difficult, thanks to all the ideas I found here, thank you very much!

I had no previous experience on this so this what I did, I bought 2 boxes of Betty Crocker's chocolate fudge and baked each in a rectangular shape, I bought also the frosting and dye.
One of the cakes was for the ground and I cut the other in equal squares and stacked them for the castle and "glue" them with caramel.

I used ice cream cones for the towers, dipping them with chocolate and sprinkles. As I didn't have much time I decided to match the cone's color with the frosting using the mixture for "toast" color on the dye box (that was luck!).

I put everything together and used M&M's, mini marshmallows and two pieces of a chocolate for decoration.

I made a lot of mistakes, but I think it turned out very good, my daughter and family loved it!

I got the idea for a castle cake after seeing the turret kit in a craft store and decided that I had to make this cake for a friend's daughter. I have two boys and am used to making blue and brown so I was really going to enjoy making a 'pretty' cake.

I started out by baking two round cakes. 1 10" and 1 8" and icing them in white and placing them on top of each other with supports in between.

I then iced all of the turret pieces (window borders and turret peaks), the door and windows. I then assembled and placed the turrets, door and windows on the cake and placed little sugar flowers around the base of everything (both cakes, turrets, window sills, and door). I then used a leaf tip to stagger leaves around and under all of the flowers to create a more realistic look.

The cake did take quite a while but I really enjoyed making it and it was a big hit at the party. Have had numerous calls since to decorate more.
