Thanks for the tutorial. It is a good one.
This is awesome. Thank you.
I do love the techniques, hints and tips - but one thing that always confuses me, especially with American TV and websites - in the UK we would not be allowed under health and safety laws to use anything non edible in a food product (especially for public consumption). OK, would probably get away with it for close family etc... but not otherwise.
I think the castle is wonderful - but I will have to try and think of some alternative way to make the turrets. Lovely cake, really lends itself to much imagination
Thank You!- Gonna try this... :)
Thank You for the tutorial..gonna try this! :)
This is absolutely stunning, what a fabulous idea! Must definitely try this out as it gives the whole idea of being a beach theme ...:)
I used to make castles when I lived in England. I mad the turrets with sponge cake baked in clean empty bean/pea or any round tin. You can layer one on top the other to get the height you may need.
If you use the cake in the towers, how do you keep them from falling away from the cake in travel?? Thankyou, great tutorial! Grammy1963
I'll definitly try it :)
I live in the UK and I've just bought a castle cake silicone mould from Aldi I think it was about £4. So it will solve the turret problem. It looks like one of those kids sandcastle buckets. I'm going to try it using the sand effect above what a great idea.
Great tutorial and my little beachcombing grandson is 4 in 3 weeks. I think I'll use swiss rolls for the turrets with dowels to keep them upright. Thankyou for this
Great tutorial! I did a huge sand castle cake a few years ago for my cousins beach-themed wedding. The turrets were made of cake and I used 4 dowels that were secured to the wooden board to keep them standing. It was an enormous cake and traveled a few hours without issue! You could also use cereal treats for the turrets if you needed something edible.
I build things out of rice krispie treats. I would do that for this cake, then secure them with dowels into the board, or horizontally into the cake. Beautiful cake! Great idea!
