This was the cake my mother did for my daughter 6th birthday. Wait I know this is way too much for a six year old, I agree. But her birthday is Dec. 14th. And I realized this year, the poor child has never really had a "real" birthday party. So this year Mommy & Daddy threw her a big party with Princesses and Knights and a dragon and jousting and everything, so we had to have the cake to match. I think ths is my mom's best cake! The castle is stacked styrofoam and alot nicer than the Wilton castle.
