A Charming Castle

Posted by on Feb 25, 2012 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

Tonight my husband and 2 daughters are off to a father/daughter dance at the school.  This is their 3rd year going and they have such a great time.  It is run by their Girl Scout troops.  This year, their leaders asked me to make a center piece cake for the event.  The theme?  One Starry Knight…they wanted a sheet cake but a castle with pink and purple.  Fun!

This cake is a 2 layer 12×18 cake in buttercream icing.  I put a 6″ round cake on that and used some of Wilton’s castle set pieces to finish it off along with lots of small fondant flowers.  The walkway is fondant and made with a impression mat I have.  I hope all of the girls tonight love it!

And a few closeups…

A Castle for a Princess

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

As I started in on this cake yesterday it suddenly occurred to me that I was creating a castle cake on the same day as the royal wedding!  Go figure 🙂   This cake was made for a little princess turning 5.  It was a replica of the castle on the invite (see below).  This cake started out as a 12×18 sheet cake that I cut to size.  Then it is fondant covered.  The flags are made with a fondant/gumpaste blend to help them stay waving. 🙂

And here is the pic from the invite:

Castle Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 25, 2008 in Cupcakes, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

These castle cupcakes I made for my daughter to take to school for her bday.  I had found this idea online along with another idea (princess crowns).  I let her pick thinking that won’t take too long.  Ok…well lesson learned 😉  I spent a good 4 hrs on the castles alone.  Fortunately the baking and icing/glitter part was super quick. 🙂  But she loves them (other than thinking that the castles were going to be really big cause of the pic I had shown her).  They are dusted in a pearl dust so they shimmer.  I had to make 24 of them to take.  Whew…I’m tired of that now 🙂  But they did turn out cute.   I wish the pic could show the details and shimmer better…I need to make that light box!

Idea was from familyfun.com. The turrets are sugar cones coated in colored melted chocolate wafers and sprinkled with colored sugar crystals.
