Hello. I am going to make a princess cake for one of my friends. I was wondering of some ways to decorate it. I want to make it so it has at least two different stories. Also, i was wondering how should i make the towers of the cake. I want them be edible. I want everything to be edible.
Thanks.

I don't know how simple or elaborate you want the cake to be, but a simple idea would be a 2 tiered cake with a gumpaste crown on top and a gumpaste wand resting on the top of the bottom tier.

My turrets are not edible..... I covered various sized cardboard rolls in fondant..... I couldn't figure out how you would secure real cake turrets without having them fall over......

I made edible turrets out of RKT and covered them with fondant. Very easy to do. icon_smile.gif

Use ice cream cones for the turrets.

I made a whimisical fairy castle cake out of MMF. Tthe top "castle" potion was cake and fondat. That top was her peice of cake and she actually did eat some of the towers. The whole cake was edible except the small fairies I decorated the castle with.

If you would like to see the picture is here:

I just made a princess castle cake last weekend (in my photos). I made the walls out of white choc, except for the towers. They are made out of construction paper with pink/white choc rocks. It was a huge hit, and really heavy. Hope this helps.

I did a pillow princess cake recently. It was my first and not hard at all. Look under my photos.
