Castle Cake

cake 171

“Thank you for the simply spectacular cakes for Max and Mia’s birthdays.  They really are amazing- what talent you have!  The cakes made the day so special! -Anna R (Falls Church, VA)

For this cake, the only parameters that the client gave me was that her daughter was having a princess and knights themed party.   We discussed a few size options, and she decided to go with a single 10 inch cake which provides a good number of servings but is a bit more economical than a tiered cake.  Based on the theme of the party, I created a castle cake with fondant accents.  Usually, I prefer for everything on my cakes to be edible, but in order to get the height and look that I wanted, I relented and used wrapping paper tubes covered in fondant for the towers.

Cake Dimensions:  (1) 10-in round
Serving Size:  25 sensible servings
Type: Fondant over buttercream with fondant and ice cream cone accents
