My oldest daughter Lily loves princesses...and well, every princess needs a castle! So I thought about buying the Wilton Castle Cake kit, but with my adventurous side tugging at me, I decided to just make one myself! I researched a lot of different castle cake designs and combined my favorite ideas with a few of my own. The cake was marble cake for the bottom tier, strawberry for the top, both filled and covered with buttercream. The towers are made of ice cream cones covered with white chocolate, the door, windows and cobble stone path were all handmade with fondant and the grass and flowers are royal icing. My daughter absolutely loved it!
