My granddaughter wanted a Castle cake for her third birthday and she loves the color pink, as all three year old girls do. I actually started preparing for this cake an entire week before the birthday, since I work full time.
Over a two-day period, I made approx. 750 drop flowers, tinted purple and pink with yellow centers, out of Royal icing, on small pieces of wax paper.
On another day, I trimmed all of the doors and windows with pink Royal icing and sprinkled glitter on them while wet. The day after that, I coated the peaks of the Wilton castle kit with Royal icing and coated each one with pink sanding sugar.
The day before, I baked one 10″ round cake and one 6″ round cake. I used white buttercream frosting to coat each layer before stacking the cakes, with the aid of dowel rods. Once stacked, I started adding the turrets and other castle pieces. I trimmed the cake with a simple bead border and then topped with alternating drop flowers and leaves. I also added flowers and leaves under each of the windows and, more compactly, around the base.
Once I was finished, I dusted the entire cake with clear edible glitter for extra sparkle and added all of the princesses.
