Castle Birthday Cake

My 3 y/o is having a Cinderella birthday party tomorrow. This is the castle cake I made for the event. I'm very happy with how it came out. Eight 6 inch cakes make the side towers. Four Square cakes for the main building and 3 oversided cupcakes for the central tower. An ice cream cone for the center tower top. The side towers, I used the top for the castle cake in a kit. Then of course, grass, vines and flowers (not drop flowers, they were made on a flower nail). Oh, and royal icing for the door.

Thanks. Yes, it was a lot of work. But worth it. The brick work alone took over 6 hours.

Awesome job! How long did all the decorating take you? You're daughter must be really excited!

WOW really nice!

Thanks. The lettering and the door are made from Royal Icing. I printed it out and outlined in Royal icing then let it dry. The brickwork is done with a #12. Just do one at a time and overlap them on each row. Then press them down with my finger for the flat effect. The courtyard bricking is in white like the walkway. And the color was light purple (to go with the Disney paper products and b/c she said she wanted a purple castle). Not including baking time, I think I spent 14 hours decorating.

i'm sure it was 14 hours well spent...especially when u see how jealous all her friends are going to be...i made a castle cake this summer and i thought wow...look at the look on her face, it's all worth it..but it was even MORE worht it when her friends went crazy about it, and believe me, it conjured up a lot of business...

She was soooooo cute at the party. I got a cute shot of her and one of the other little girls looking at the cake on the table and Meg was telling her "Dat my cake" with a huge grin. To cute. ANd ppl were asking me if the brick work was marshmallows. Uhm. No. It's all frosting. LOVE the screams when you cut something like this. I'm so weird......
