4 Year Old's Castle Cake

I was sooo excited to do this cake. Inspiration came from this site, of course! Mishaps baking the cakes, they kept falling - almost pulled my hair out. Covered in BC. I used wilton's recipe for the filling, but ran out of butter. I didn't have any flavorings and it was a little too Crisco tasting for me. Tried out the dream whip BC recipe (off this site) and loved it. Towers are paper towel rolls with upside down waffle cones covered lightly in purple sprinkles. Roses are BC made a few days ahead.

Love your castle! I wanted to put vines on mine but didn't...love how yours turned out. What did you use on the tops, they look like sugar cubes.

Yes, they are sugar cubes. I have to say....that was my hubby's idea. Shhh, don't tell. He told me if I told anyone he helped he'd have me strung up :evil:

great cake! What size cakes did you use?

I used three layer 8" square, one layer 6" square, one layer 6" round. All but the round I just torted once, the round I torted twice. If I could go back I would have torted the 6" square two times and the round once.
