My niece turned 3 over the weekend. And this year she was very clear on what she wanted for her birthday: a princess castle cake!
At first, Grandma looked into purchasing a castle cake pan and found a lot of great pans available:
Since she had enough time, she decided to try to create her own. She typically doesn’t create a lot of 3D cakes; she usually creates a sheet cake like my son’s rocket cake. Mostly because 3D cakes serve a large number of people and you can end up with tons of leftovers. They also tend to be trickier to construct and transport.
After a bit of hard work, she ended up with a fun, girlie 3D castle birthday cake embellished with Disney Princess figurines, hot pink pointy towers made out of ice cream cones, and topped with a photo frame containing the birthday girl’s picture.
Everyone loved the cake. The birthday girl was especially tickled pink with her castle cake. Grandma even surprised her with a small princess cake that was just for her. Although there was a bit of leftover cake to send home with everyone, it was another birthday cake success!
