This cake was for my son's birthday. I made the turrets, flags, and top of the castle in advance out of gum paste to allow to dry. The moat is a mixture of BC and pipping gel. I used an impression mat for stone effect on the walls. Fun cake to make, but not sure if I would do it again unless someone was paying me a a lot of money to do. Very time consuming:)
Smaller cake was the forest and log cabin from the book. Log cabin is just graham crackers covered in chocolate icing and pretzels.
