Candy Castle Cake is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The instructions for this cake are horrible. They do not tell you how much icing you need. The recipe only makes 3 cups and you need 3-4 times that much. It does not tell you what color to decorate individual items. It is hard to follow. Our cake turned out great and my granddaughter loved it but my daughter was discouraged and I had to finish. I have had classes but she has not although she has mades several cakes. Wilton's instructions have always been great in the past so the instructions for this cake were a real disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake is adorable. I made it for my little sister's birthday with a few differences. I used sugar cones and little pastel colored chocolate lentils with pink icing to make it more girlish. It wasn't too hard and everyone loved it- even the boys! This is everyone's favorite birthday cake. I hope you enjoy making it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my Granddaughter and she loved it. I took a few liberties like buttercream instead of fondant. We created a path from the castle with little bridge and moat. We used fruit roll-ups for the moat and twizzlers to help create the bridge. This cake had you using lots of imagination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is very impressive, but not hard to make. I covered the towers in fondant and made what looked like ice cream cones on top. Loved decorating the cake with all the candy. That makes it really easy for someone not sure or confident in using decorator bags. I would make this cake again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My little girl loved her castle cake! Looks much harder to make than it is. I found it easy to cover the cones with sugar by putting my hand inside and turning them in a plate of colored sugar. Used pink and purple and it looked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a little girls candyland themed birthday. When I walked in the door with it she started screaming and jumping around. She loved it and so did her Mom and Dad.
