This was our first attempt at a homemade birthday cake. We used box cake mixes, funfetti flavor & it was very moist. The frosting on the Castle cake is made out of marshmallow fondant tinted grey, black & yellow.
The fondant is what took the longest to prepare, but I think if we make another cake it will only get faster & easier. We used a combination of ideas from this website & our own ideas. The tower in the middle is made with 2 cake icecream cones,one whole one & one top turned upside down. That was frosted with tinted can frosting. The original plan was to have a tower in each corner too, but we ran out of steam.
We used the fondant, mini marshmallows & black Twizlers for the decorations. It took 5+ hours to bake & decorate, but our 3 year old really loved it & it was worth it!
I made this Princess castle cake for my mom' birthday (2/26/12). I wanted to do a castle using my fancy new Wilton cake set, but this cake was only going to be eaten by 5 people. I scoured for ideas on the net. It was very hard to find a single tier castle cake, so I decided to ''wing'' it. I did have a little inspiration through searches (must give credit where its due).
This is a checkerboard cake covered in butter cream and homemade marshmallow fondant. I covered the plastic cones on top of the turrets with fondant as well. It was actually a lot easier than it looks. I highly recommend the Wilton Romantic Castle cake set. There are a lot of pieces, and so much you can do with them. I look forward to using them again for my niece's birthday. Stay tuned!
This castle cake was made for my daughter's 3rd birthday. The cake is one 14in round, one 10in round, one 6in round, and a custard cup at the top. The towers are made up of two regular ice cream cones and one sugar cone, coated with almond bark and pink sprinkles. The little towers have only one regular cone. Detailing with the black icing helped this cake really come together!
My daughter's only disappointment was that the princesses could not go through the door! It took approx. 3 hrs to decorate. (This does not include baking and cooling.)
My twin nieces requested a Homemade Castle Birthday Cake. I used 2-8x8 squares, 1 6 inch round and I used cupcakes on the corners. If I ever do this cake again though, I will bake and extra layer and cut out the circles for the corners because it was hard making the cupcakes stay.
I had to use lots of toothpicks to keep them from separating from the body of the cake.
