Today I wanted to share a cake I made for my TWIN goddaughters on their third birthday. I don't have a step by step tutorial. But, I'll point out some ideas that might interest you.
*Bottom layer is 10" and top layer is 8". This cake easily serves 48 guests. If you have questions about how many guests you can serve with different size cakes here is a great Wilton website that can guide you.
* As you can see I used ice cream cones as roof tops for the castle towers. However!, they were too big for the towers and the cake, so with patience we cut out at least a 1/4 of the bottom half of the cone. When they were all leveled and almost the same size (You really can't do much with waffle cones), they didn't look so cute, so I added a think strip of fondants to cover the not straight cracks it had.
*To make the cake look like bricks. You first have to let the buttercream dry. Once its dry you can use a brick fondant impression mat. The trick is letting the icing fully dry, so that when you take the mat off the cake, the icing doesn't come off with it.
*I bought the princess dolls at Target, and love them because they are glitterfied and you can change their clip on outfits. Makes me wanna be three again!!!
*You can't see the glitter on the cake, but remember, no three year old cake is apt for a three year old, unless you overflow it with glitter and love.
hope you liked :)
