Additional Information

Step 1

*Combine Violet with Rose for violet shade shown.

In advance, using royal icing, make 300 tip 225 drop flowers with tip 2 dot centers. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry. Trim 1 in. off open end of 4 sugar ice cream cones. Beginning at bottom edge, pipe tip 16 pull out stars for branches. Let dry.

Step 2

Bake and cool 5 complete cupcakes and one extra bottom. Ice cupcakes tops and bottoms smooth in buttercream icing. Using Cake Divider Set, dot mark cupcake tops into 8ths 1 in. from bottom edge up to top points. On 4 of the cupcake tops, between one division section trim 1 in. off cupcake so that cake will sit flush against center cake when assembled. Set aside.

Step 3

Decorate cupcake bases: Mark windows 1 1/2 x 1 in. and 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 in. doors on cupcake bases. Outine and fill in using tip 5. Smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch. Using tip 3 pipe drapes, scrolls around windows, door heart, and door knob. Add tip 2 dots. Position tops on bases. Pipe tip 3 beads on tops at division marks. Attach drop flowers with dots of icing to form garland.

Step 4

Assemble cakes: Turn extra cupcake bottom upside down, position on foil-covered base board and prepare for stacked construction. Position one assembled cupcake on top. Arrange cupcakes around center stacked cupcake, positioning cut edges flush against center cake.

Step 5

Ice board around cakes. Position trees. For bushes, outline cupcakes using tip 12. Overpipe for dimension. Cover with tip 16 stars. Attach drop flowers.

Step 6

Make pennants: Using card stock cut out 2 in. wide x 1 in. high pennants and attach to lollipop sticks using transparent tape. Insert into castle cake tops. Attach drop flowers at insertion point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We made this cake for my daughter's first birthday, and it was great!! We only made three of the cupcakes though b/c we were not having that many guests. But it was a huge success and everyone loved the cake. The icing was very easy to make however we found that we needed to make the same amount that it called for for the bigger cake even though we were using a smaller cake. Also, some of the flowers that we pre-made did not turn out as good as we had hoped and it was still very easy to add them to the cake after it was already made using the icing decorator. Over all I m a beginner at cake decorating and this was pretty easy, and it was a great success!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this a few years ago for my daughters 3rd birthday. She loved it ... said it was "magical"!! I was time consuming & I only made it a 3 part building. Tall 1 in the middle w/2 smaller 1s on each side. I covered the roofs in all flowers & it looked pretty cute. It took like 5-6 cakes mixes as well. But none-the-less it was worth all the trouble because she was aww struck & totally amazed!! I am a beginner ... but if u have the patients ... you 2 can achieve this cake!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to do and follow!! Had a few changes with the types of flowers, just because of preference, and I added some "growing" flowers around the outside of the castle, just because my girls love to help, so they were cutting LOTS of fondant flowers while I frosted!! Cake was loved by everyone!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake was a hit at my daughter's party. I used fondant instead of the buttercream and used the stone mat press for the walls to look more like a castle. This cake does take a lot of time to make though because each of the cupcakes takes over an hour to bake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this for my daughter's 5th birthday. I changed it to a three tower instead of five. I also made a small carrige with a mini ball pan. I have a picture on my facebook page. The only difficulty is trying to make it all smooth due to the ridges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake made my niece's day. Her favorite color is yellow so I swapped out the pink for yellow. It was pretty easy, a little time consuming, but so worth it.
