I have a request for a bday cake for a 3 yr old and the theme is disney princess. In speaking to the mom she said it needs to be for 20-30 people- So my thought no character pan, not that I like doing them anyway. The question is should I do a castle cake, sheet cake with frosting sheet of disney princess theme???? Pls help

I can't wait to do a castle cake for my daughter's birthday next year. The ideas I have are to make it like the show at Cinderella's castle at Disney World that we saw a couple of years ago. All the princesses were featured... I am going to make a castle cake to look sort of like Cinderella's castle with Cinderella on the steps and Jasmine on a magic carpet holding Aladdin's lamp sitting on the top and then around the base make rocks with a wave splashing up on the rocks with Ariel sitting on top of the rocks. I might have Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) lying down somewhere and Belle at a table with the candlestick or teapot character on the table. I've thought of putting Snow White somewhere holding an apple in front of a mirror with a rabbit or some other animal at her feet. I haven't figured out how I'm going to do it all yet as her birthday just passed and she insisted on a Dora theme this year. I'm really hoping she will pick the princesses next year!

The new Wilton Yearbook has a cake of Cinderella, using the Disney Princess pan. It's a chocolate(?) plaque of Cinderella on top of a fondant covered sheet cake. What if you tried that and put it over a bigger sheet cake? (I'm not sure how many servings are in the one in the book.) That's what I plan on doing for my girls' b-day party icon_wink.gif

If you look in my photos you will see a cinderella cake that I made. I made Cinderella, a carriage and a cake for the carriage to sit on. You don't have to go to that extreme but you can make a 3-d Princess cake and serve it on top of a 1/4 to 1/2 sheet cake

I have done a few castles and they aren't really all that difficult. But they might not be what you want ...I guess it just depends on how much you want to put into it too. I mean if the customer only paid $50 or less I wouldnt do a full castle for that little. I might would do a sheet cake with the plastic figures and pretty colored borders or something or an edible image

I'm getting ready to do a Disney Princess cake too. It really depends on what price you quoted her. For that amount of people I would do an 11X15 sheet cake with a large FBCT of a princess etc. with a simple shell top & bottom border for $45. If I were going to do an extravagant castle cake I would charge $65. Hope that helps.

Hi. I did a disney princess cake a few weeks ago. I did an edible image of the princesses on top of a sheet cake. I had a customer see it on my website and wanted the same thing. On the secind one I used some edible glitter and it came out really cute. The other idea is you could make a sheet cake with a crown in the middle. You could then put some princess figures around it(they sell princess cake kits at most bakeries). You could do your borders in pinks and purples. Hope that helps you!

I don't know how much time you have before you need to do the cake, but this kit is really cute for a castle cake.
