I decided to create a Disneyland Birthday Cake and scene for my little boy's 3rd birthday! There were a total of seven cakes with different flavors and different flavored icings with each cake themed after a different land in Disneyland with the characters on top.
I glued two foam boards together to make the base and added the main street and sidewalk with scrapbook papers. I made the Madehorn with leftover cake that I molded into a mountain and froze in tin foil to keep the shape then covered in frosting and powdered sugar. I used different mediums for decorations including fondant shapes, walnuts, lollipops, pipe cleaners with shapes glued on top, Disney characters for cake toppers, printed out pictures from Disneyland for the signs for each land, scrapbook stickers glued to foam paper on Popsicle sticks to represent other attractions at the park and bows to represent the fireworks over the castle.
I used pudding boxes covered in pictures of the Main Street USA buildings and glued them on to the boxes but it is a bit hard to see them from the angle of this picture, shiny black scrapbook paper on top to represent the roof.
This Elysias Epic Castle Cake was inspired by several images found on Google. The body of the cake is made from two cakes and the towers are made from chocolate logs with waffle cones on top.
The only part of this cake that isn't edible are the toothpicks on the fairies wands. All the creatures and decorations are made from fondant! The vines on the outside are made from rolled up fondant with flowers squeezed from a piping tube. Everything is layered in colored fondant to hold it all together.
This cake took two of us 10 hours to build, however it was our first ever attempt at making a kids cake, and I had never worked with fondant before, fondant is a lot of fun to play with and I had such a blast building the pond and fairies and all the little toadstools around the garden.
The hardest part was balancing the towers and rolling them in fondant, I would advise you to freeze the logs before hand. I put each of the pillars in the freezer after decorating them and added them to the castle at the end.
I made this Dragon Castle Cake for my son's 7th birthday party. It was my first time making a cake like this. I found it to be easy as long as you prepare the materials needed. I made my own butter cream frosting and fondant. I started with a square medium size cake pan for the base then made a square small pan for the top. I dirty iced the two cakes then rolled out the fondant and placed to over the tops of the cakes. Then I cut paper towel rolls and put icing on them and wrapped them in the fondant that is what I used for the towers on the top of the tower I iced ice cream cones and rolled them in jimmies. Then I just rolled out colored fondant and cut out the windows.
I used piping gel for the mot and drawbridge. Then just placed the dragons on the cake were I thought they would look good.
This Disney Princess Castle Birthday Cake was a cake I made for my 5 year old niece. It was made from strawberry and Victoria sponge layers for the castle. The towers were made from Swiss rolls and ice-cream cones decorated in 100's/1000's. The castle and towers were imprinted with a brick pattern to make it look real, whilst the door was made from chocolate icing and imprinted with the wood look pattern. I made the green grass look from icing on top of a cake board.
