This is my princess castle cake I made for my god daughter’s Christening. The turettes themselves are plastic brought from Wilton castle kit. The cake board is just covered in green fondant icing to look like a grass area you would get a castle sitting on.
I covered the cones in pink fondant and sprayed them with a pearlescent spray. I had to make 400 blossoms to go this cake, I made them from fondant and pipped the center with colored royal icing on every single one, this took a bit of time.
The cakes were vanilla sponge, both tiers, and was layered white then pink and then white again. These cakes ended up being about 4-5″ deep once filled and covered. I filled with a white butter cream flavored strawberry.
The cakes were covered with fondant icing and sprayed with the same pearl spray to give a shine. Once placed on top of each other and on the board I went round both tiers with royal icing and pipped beads around each base to seal in the cake and allow no air to get in.
The castle parts were then attached by royal icing and once dried I attached the blossoms to the windows and around the cakes including the door. I pipped leaves in royal green icing and left to dry. I had to take a repair kit with me just in case anything needed to be touched up as this wasn’t just big but very fragile at the same time.
The party after the Christening was held at a local Weatherspoons pub, the families and friends thought this cake was amazing and the whole pub wanted to see it. I must admit it was heavy and was pretty big and definitely was a show stopper. I don’t actually remember there being any cake left over. I’m pretty sure people went up for thirds. I really enjoyed making this cake and was a great pleasure to do so as well.
