How To Make A Castle Cake

Make your little girl feel like a princess with her very own castle cake. Expert Sugarcrafter Jan Clement-May and sugarcraft school, Squires Kitchen, are going to show us how make this fairytale castle out of cake.

Step 1: You will need

  • 1 Large filled sponge cake
  • 1 Small filled sponge cake
  • Buttercream
  • Red food colouring
  • 9 Chocolate mini rolls
  • 9 Ice cream cones
  • Wooden skewer
  • Chocolate sticks
  • Hundreds and thousands
  • Chocolate buttons
  • Dolly mixtures

Step 2: Cakes

Spread a small amount of buttercream in the centre of the large cake. Stick the smaller cake on top.

Step 3: Buttercream

Add the red food colouring to the buttercream to make a pretty princess pink, then cover the whole cake in this pink buttercream using a pallette knife.

Step 4: Towers

Place four chocolate mini-rolls at equal intervals around the base of the large cake, then another four around the smaller cake. Finally place a single mini roll in the centre of the smaller cake, and secure it in place by pushing a wooden skewer down the centre.

Step 5: Spires

Cover the mouth of an ice cream cone in buttercream, then sprinkle it with hundreds and thousands. Repeat for each ice cream cone. Rest each ice cream cone on top of a mini-roll.

Step 6: Door & windows

Cut five chocolate sticks in half. Take two of these halves and cut the top at an angle. Repeat with another two sticks. Stick these onto the side of the cake to create a door. Press chocolate buttons at regular intervals around the side of the cake for windows.

Step 7: Decorations

Press a line of sweets around the base of the cake, another around the base of the smaller cake, and another around the top tower. Finish by sticking some fairy models to the board to give the castle some life.
