Last week, my little girl turned six and you wouldn’t believe that if you saw her in real life. She is as little as a three or four year old. Anyway, I asked her what type of cake she wanted and she requested a Princess Castle cake for her big day. So on her birthday eve, after putting them to bed, I started whisking and baking. It took me nearly 3 hours just to bake alone. I didn’t have enough baking equipment resulting in having to wait until I’d finished with some items so it could be washed and dried before reusing for the next task.
So I made two tiers of Madeira cake and a sponge cake for the top. The reason for the different cake was because I ran out of baking ingredients too! Then I iced it with strawberry flavour icing. For the castle, I dipped the ice cream cones into candy sauce and sprinkled lot of sprinkles onto it. Once dried, I sliced a few into half for the sides of the castle.
Then I made a flag from a cocktail stick and paper. Once everything was in place, I mixed two different icing for piping. The green is for the plant and red icing for the flower.
This is my first time making such a big cake. Hopefully by next year, I am able to polish up on my piping and decorating skills and make a better looking cake! For now, this is it! A total of six hours of baking is definitely worth it when you saw the look on her face. She was very delighted!
