Princess Castle Cake

My daughter turned 5 today (10-10-10) and we wanted it to be magical in every way (unfortunately we have been falling sick one after the other) so we couldn't celebrate like we had planned. Though it was low key, we still made it special for her and I baked her this Princess Castle Cake. We had been planning on this for a while now. .. it was supposed to be bigger with 5 turrets instead of just the one but then we stuck to the smaller, scaled down version due to lack of time and energy. She had an awesome time decorating it - helped roll the cones in purple sprinkle sugar, stuck the nougats, m&ms, jelly beans, the flags and was extremely happy about it.


I used store bought icing which was too thick and inspite of me freezing the cake for an hour & trying to do a crumb coat, it was very hard to get it on smoothly. Well, i should've just made my cream cheese icing instead which definitely is easier to work with.

Here's one with with the birthday candles lit up...

  11. Belated wishes to the dear princess and I am sure she had a blast. Which little girl wouldn't like a cake like that?
    Btw, thank you so much dear Laavanya for the wishes. DS had a blast on his Sunday being a Sunday and all that. He goes around telling people that he is now 5 and 1/2 years old.
    Of course, I did remember your daughter on that day , but have not been able to actively comment. Hope you are all doing good!

  12. Great cake! You could thin the icing by adding water to it. But just a little, drop by drop, till you reach the desired consistency.
