My husband and I wanted to make a beautiful cake for our daughter's first birthday. This is our first time ever doing a cake like this. We were proud of it. We did a princess theme, she was dressed up royal and all.
The Princess Caste Birthday Cake is 2 square and two circle cakes. We used three cake mixes. The circles we used half of a box in each (but you can make them any size). We used fondant for the cake.
For the towers we used frosting that we dyed pink.We tried to match the colors to the cake. We used cones to make them and fondant for the windows and door.
Then we outlines where the water, walkway, and road would be. The road is light frosting just enough for stickiness covered with coco. We used the mini marshmallows to look like rocks.
Then water is frosting that's been dyed blue. The grass is green frosting that we piped out little dots with a hook (took the longest amount of time). The pathway is frosting as well.
Then we used gumdrops to outline the water and for the princess to sit on to help keep her still. We threw out a few princesses with a something that represents them like Ariel has the fish with her etc. There is also a gum drop keeping the flags on the top of the towers.
Then lastly we sprinkled eatable glitter for shine. The cake was the hit of the party other than the beautiful princess who we think loved her cake.

Here is a sand castle cake I baked for my daughter's 7th Birthday on a houseboat trip. Not an easy feat being that we were in the middle of the lake. I used a regular store bought white cake mix and a whipped white Frosting.
For the "sand" effect I crushed cinnamon graham crackers. I felt the cinnamon was a more realistic look for sand with the varying colors. I used all disposable baking pans, 1 9in. round, 1 6in. round and 1 cm.loaf pan.
I frosted each on separately before stacking. Next I sprinkled the "sand" over the cake. I used graham sticks to add castle dimensions and then added the "turrets" of ice cream cones. To hold the cones together I used icing to glue them.
The cake was a hit with all the kids, especially my daughter who had no idea I was making her a cake at all, and the parents were amazed that I pulled it off on the houseboat. Especially since I was out crushing graham crackers with a rock in the morning, (I couldn't find a rolling pin on the houseboat).
I even was brave enough to try this cake again when I got home and had a family party. Despite the look it was quite easy and very fulfilling to see my daughters happiness and everyone's reaction.
This cake was for my little cousin's 11th bithday. She wanted a Luau Theme party. The sand is crushed Gram Crackers. We colored the icing on the cake a tan color and then pressed the gram cracker onto the cake. The shells are made out of white and peanut-butter chocolate. The points on the corners where ice-cream cones and we put icing on them then pressed gram cracker into them. The top of the cake was made by baking the cake in a clay pot. The water is just edible gel. The cake was a hit at the party and the birthday girl loved it. Such a simple cake to do!
