A fairy tale princess castle cake is 8”x4” round butter cake on top of a 10” x 3” yellow cake on top of a 10”x3” strawberry and yellow marble cake.
Iced with butter cream.
Each column has drop swags of royal icing and the turrets are covered in royal icing rolled in a mixture of edible cake sparkles, sparkle cake sugar and luster dust.
They stand tall with the help of melted white chocolate as ‘glue’.
There are 285 (I counted) hand make fondant forget-me-not flowers adorning this cake.
Most were applied with tweezers and royal icing and everything trimmed out with leaves and grass.
The doors are made from chocolate fondant and hand painted with edible gold pearl dust.
The coble stone path and rocks are made of white satin marshmallow fondant.
The cake weighed 17 pound of cake icing alone (without the columns and other embellishments)
26 cups of cake batter and 10lbs of powdered sugar went into making these cakes.
It took 15 hours from start to finish.
I wish I would have had more time with this cake. I had all kinda of ideas of water, draw bridge and other things to put on it. Most of all I wish i had time to take better photos of it. The lighting is awful!
