Disney Princess Cake
My little girl turned 3 recently. How did that happen? She absolutely adores the Disney princess so I decided to make her a princess castle cake and put on all of the Disney princesses. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture before my youngest took all of the towers off of the castle.
Keeping the kids away from the castle and not playing with the castle was the biggest struggle I had with the cake. My youngest especially thought this castle was for playing. She didn't quite understand that this for eating. By the time we were actually ready to eat the cake, the princesses had been moved to several different spots.
My daughter already had the Disney princesses and they were the perfect size to be cake toppers. The castle was made with rice krispy treats, gumpaste and fondant. The cake itself is covered in fondant. The rocks that you see at the bottom of the cake are chocolate rocks. They looked incredibly realistic but tasted wonderful.
It's hard to see in this picture, but the half circle portions of the grass are imprinted using a vine imprinted roller. I thought it brought a touch of elegance and I can't wait to use that roller again.
I'm kicking myself because one thing I didn't think of until later was that I could have used small waffle cones for the roofs of the towers. That would have saved myself a lot of aggravation from having to mold the rice krispy treats into points. That also would have probably been easier to cover in fondant and would have created a neat pattern through the fondant. Oh well, next time.
