How to make princess castle cake - Page 2

I bought canned asparagus, and used the empty cans to bake the towers- worked great with dowels to hold them in place.
If all is not lost, where is it?

I had the same dilemma as you, those turrets are intimidating. Ditto with the paper towel rolls or aluminum foil rolls or parchment paper rolls. I find the last two more sturdier than the paper towel roll.

I have a tutorial on how I made the turrets for my nephew's castle cake.

Hope this helps!

I also tried the whole castle idea for my daughter's third birthday and for the towers i used thick frosting and cupcakes. I wouldn't assemble that part until you arrive at the location. To thicken up the frosting I heated it up and added a little cornstarch and as it dried it became really thick and sticks well. I wished I would have used the mini cupcakes instead because the regular sized ones made quite thick towers but depending on the size of the round cakes it may look okay.

When I made my grand daughters castle cakes, I made them out of styrofoam, used the rolls from saran wrap for the towers covered in fondant cut hole for windows and in one tower I  put a picture of the  birthday girl.   I did this because I knew that when the time came to cut the castle they would not want it cut,  Been there with a little boy and his train cake, and can't get the picture out of mind of the tears rolling down his cheeks and his crying to his grandfather who was honored with the first piece of cake, "put it back put it back"  it spoiled his birthday to have his train cake cut and eaten.  For my granddaughters, I made the castle, and placed it on a mountain, made with the doll pan, They ate the mountain, and saved the castles which have been the center piece   on the table for every birthday since.  My daughter in law has been asked to sale the castles, rent them out, because so many of the girls little friends wanted a castle cake like theirs. They are still using them, four and seven years later. The oldest one tells me she is going to have hers on her wedding cake.
