Princess Castle Cake

Here's the latest cake I've done. I saw this castle kit on the Wilton website recently, and I've been so excited to get my hands on it and try it out. It was definitely worth the $19.95 at Michael's. I didn't even use all of the pieces on this cake. It has 12 towers with removable turrets, 6 windows, a door, and a main roof peak. I have a feeling I might wish there were more windows someday. We'll see...

Anyway, it was fairly easy to decorate the plastic pieces - just used icing and edible glitter/colored sugar sprinkles.

Oh yeah, and this is what I look like at 2AM when I finish a cake fit for a princess. It didn't really have to keep me up that late, but I am a night owl by nature. I just should have baked the cakes and gotten the castle supplies the day before. Then I could have gotten to the decorating earlier in the day and gone to bed before midnight. The cake actually only took about 3 hours to decorate once I got going on it.
I just hope nothing happens to it when I deliver it! (It's on the same street, several houses down from mine.) Just pray that I don't have a "cake-tastrophe"!! Sorry for the weird lighting issues on the pictures - I don't know what's up with my camera.

That is amazing! You do such an awesome job each time Kelley. I think it's time to open your own bakery :-)

BTW, any ideas for my son's 6th b-day party next week? We're doing transformers!

Transformers would definitely be a challenge... If I was doing the cake, I would think about doing one with the Transformers logo, or getting some miniature action figures to put on top. Then Josh could even keep the toys to play with. Go to the movie website and see if they have any "coloring pages." Or look at for party & cake ideas.
