My newest cake for Icing smiles was definitely fit for a princess. It makes me feel so good to be able to donate to such a worthy cause.
And here's the princess herself! Carla is awaiting a heart transplant. I did get to meet her and let me tell you she is one of the sweetest and cutest little girls that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
I took a few pictures while creating this special cake and thought I would share.
I ended up changing the layout of the castle after I took this picture, but I used rice cereal treats and cardboard wrapping paper tubes covered in plastic wrap to create extra height and the turrets.
Using gum glue I applied dots of fondant in different colors to the cardboard tubes.
Ice cream cones were used for the top of the turrets.
For support I used bubble tea straws.
The turrets were stabilized using dowel rods and candy melts.
The very tops of the turrets were made with sugar cones and a strip of fondant that was wrapped around it and glued with gum glue.
Hope this helps in creating your own castle cake. And another thank you to Icing Smiles for connecting the birthday girl, Carla, and I!!
