I was so proud of her. She spray painted a moat and grass on the cake board. Then we figured out a way to make it with my stadium pan, flipped the cake upside-down; then we quartered and layered a square cake for the keep in the middle. There are cupcakes atop each of the four corners. It's covered in fondant that was supposed to be gray, but somehow my black icing color came out a greenish color. We also made brown and tan colored fondant stones for decoration around the castle.
The turret is a sugar cone covered in chocolate sprinkles, and the battlements are mini fudge-covered grahams. The drawbridge is a graham cracker (obviously). The only technical difficulty we had with the cake was that the keep in the center was resting on a styrofoam bowl, and it was too heavy. So, it kept tipping over. Anyway, it made it through class and we ate it that night at home for dessert. It would have been nice to share it with her friends in class, but Kirstyn wanted to save it for Nathon to see when he got home from camp.
