Castle Cake

A friend requested this castle cake for her twins 3rd birthday party. For obvious reasons it had to be done entirely in buttercream. Which I was actually happy about since I haven't really worked with butter cream since November and my skills were dwindling-this cake gave me a chance to brush up on my buttercream techniques. It's not perfect, but I think it turned out cute. It didn't take me near as long as the fondant cakes and was fun to make! I love to see the smile on people's faces when they see their cake!


  1. I love your fun color choices. I'm realizing more and more that color can make or break a cake, so it's fun to see what colors work together!

  2. I was afraid that the colors were too bright when I finished, but happily she liked it! The Wilton food coloring gels are fun to work with because they turn out super bright!
