Cupcake Kingdom Castle Cake

This fantastic fortress ideally suits every little princess. Build the royal compound from Dimensions® Giant Cupcake Pan cakes done up in pretty-in-pink-and-purple icings.


Difficulty: Medium


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.
