Princess Castle Cake | How to

When my niece turned 4 she was enamored by princesses. Can you blame her?
She asked for a princess birthday naturally. Her mom was having the party at a kid friendly play place so that really only left the cake to make the theme.

She loved the cake. And my mom said she even saw a cake similar on TV recently. Cool, right.

I used box mix and store frosting. I didn't color anything. All the colors are straight from the store. Making this project easier for people without a lot of cake supplies.

The towers are ice cream cones. Two regular cones. One waffle. I dipped them in chocolate and while it was wet stacked them so as it dried it kept them together. The chocolate color was pink. It looks fleshy without extra details.
The waffle cones were rolled in pink sprinkles while the chocolate was wet.

To attach the towers I used a spoon to scoop away the corner is the cake. Added frosting and stuck it on. One tower needed toothpick reinforcement.

The princesses were puff stickers that I stuck onto a piece of hard plastic and cut around. I was going to use a clear cutting board from $Tree but they were out of stock. In the school supply aisle they had coupon organizers. They were the perfect thickness. I hit glued a lollipop stick to the princesses who stood on the cake. The princess on the ground were stuck in a dense cake mix.

My niece loved it. It took some time. But she is always worth it.
