Long long ago, I decided to make a castle cake for Olina for her 4th birthday, which was yesterday. I chose a simple butter cake base which will give me enough volume to work with fondant, since this will be my first fondant cake.
I started making the cake late, as morning I was still finishing up the last bits of work for the cupcakes from Thurs. So only managed to start baking the cakes at 2:30pm.
While the cakes were baking, I started working on the towers. The fondant which I've made in Gina's place on Wed has hardened a little. It has to be kneaded again as I did not knead it very thoroughly on Wed. Using the toilet roll holders I've collected, I wrapped white fondant over them. I then crafted the bricks using a satay stick. It was quite tedious, but fun.
Next come the turrets which were created using two different types of ice-cream cones. I didn't want the four towers to look the same, so I created two different types of turrets.
After the cakes have completely cooled, I covered them in pink fondant. That wasn't too difficult though I could have done a better job. The last phase was to assemble all the different parts together and added in the little accessories.
