Castle Cake

18 Feb

My co-worker’s daughter is turning four years old this week and I volunteered to make her birthday cake for her.  What kind of cake?  A castle cake.  Because surely, if I can decorate a simple, two-layer cake, a castle cake can’t be all that hard!  (…and relatively speaking, it is not.)

The most important advice I will give to those of you out there who decide to tackle this cake is: Hollow out the castle pieces so that a wooden dowel can be driven through the piece.  This will help anchor it to the cake more soundly and will prevent leaning and other awful cake disasters.  (I happened upon this advice AFTER I’d decided not to hollow out the castle pieces.)  Ah, you live and you learn.  ;]
