Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a tricky idea. Making the tree base look authentic was challenging. I used fondant for the truck and branches, partially working some brown color into light brown fondant to create the grain-look. I also had to do a lot of the work on-site of the party because I couldn't travel with it all together. And if you cover the middle before hand, remember NOT TO GRAB IT to stabilize! For the roofs, I used royal icing to cover and then rolled them in appropriately colored sugar sprinkles. Once the icing dried they were easy to handle and glue onto the towers. I actually downsized it as well, since our party was 30 people not 90. It was VERY well received. I did it in Tinker Bell colors for our birthday girl. I really liked this idea, and found it easy to modify to my needs, though I still found it challenging to execute.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Though the cake is beautiful, it should be decorated on site. The turrets are very unstable and because they are sealed off on the bottom of them, they don't offer any stability on the cake... The turrets design really need to be improved upon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great idea! I was able to use the castle set i already had and with just a few changes and using the wilton rose leaf fondant cut and press i turned it into a tinkerbell treehouse castle it looked great and was so fun to make!:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I truly attempted to make this cake, but I sure didn't succeed! I hope to try again soon with it! Definitely not for someone who's never done cakes before! Absolutely love the idea though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't make this cake if you have to transport it. Especially in the summer heat. This cake turned out to be a complete dissaster and the castle was not even up on top during transport.
