I made this Homemade Princess Castle Birthday Cake for my friend's daughter. I got the idea from a similar one I had made for my own daughters birthday as she is very much a little princess herself.
To start I made 3 sponge's. The base of the castle I made 2x8inch chocolate sponges and filled them with chocolate butter cream filling. The sponge used for the top of the castle I made a 6inch chocolate sponge.
I then took some fondant icing and coloured it pink. After colouring the icing I wrapped it in cling film to make the pink come to life. While waiting for the icing I coated the sponges in apricot glaze to seal them so bits of sponge did not crumble under the icing, and also it gives a good hold on the icing. I then rolled the icing over the sponges and left to set for and hour, while that was drying on the cake I started making the door and windows. To make the corners and points I used ice cream cones, Which I cut in half.
I made up some purple fondant for the points and the corners which the points sit in I cut in half and covered them with pink fondant icing. To keep the windows, door and points on the castle I used edible glue which you can get from and cake decoration store. The door I used a sugar flair dusting, Terracotta and again you cake get this from your local cake shop.
So now my cake was ready to decorate so I glued the windows, door, and corners with points on. I then had to make the walls and flags so I measured the depth on the base of the castle and cut 4 pieces of fondant and glued them to all 4 corners of the castle, The flags I measured the all round the top of the base and made strips and made them about a centre meter and half each in width and just made little slices in them.
Now every thing had been fixed on I wanted to make the castle pretty so I made so green royal icing and piped on so growing vines all round the castle walls, I used a 2.5 piping nozzle and done little flicks to make leaves. I bought a tub of candy flowers form my local cake shop and glued them on all around to look like the vine had flowered which really brought the castle to life.
