Castles have always held a certain appeal for young girls. These stones structures have a fairy tale quality from their moats to their turrets and towers reinforced in no small measure by the fairy tales of Cinderella, Belle and Aurora on which most little girls grew up on. Beautiful princesses live in these castles supported by their loving families and beloved by their handsome princesses.
Very few parents can actually provide for true castles for their little girls, for obvious reasons, indeed. But why let your little girl’s fantasy come crashing down so easily? You have the benefit of making castle cakes for girls or even boys yourself now!
These castle cakes are just as their name implies – edible cake shaped into a castle complete with the moat, towers and turrets while your little girl can pretend that the pretty figurine inside the castle is none other than herself as the princess. And you don’t even have to spend hours upon hours slaving away at the oven just to make the prettiest castle cake for your little’s girl’s birthday. Here are a few ideas.
• Buy two ready-baked round Madeira cakes in 10″ and 8″ diameter. Layer these two cakes, place pink buttercream icing over the cakes and then place sweet candy in various shapes to make the windows, doors and other trimmings. For the towers, use baked bean tins while the spires are made from cones, all of which are covered in buttercream icing as well.
• Buy two square cakes in your little girl’s favorite flavor in two different sizes, which will then be layered and covered in the desired icing. Use inverted sugar cones for the turrets, skinny birthday candles for the flag poles and various candies for the details. Add in candy creatures depending on the theme.
Indeed, why spend hours on a castle cake when there are many ready-to-use ingredients in the supermarket? Baked cakes, canned icing and other edible materials can be assembled and voila! You have a castle cake that will delight your daughter and her party guests.
