Magical Castle Cake
Abracadabra! Create a mystical, magical castle cake, complete with turrets, windows, a door and even a moat, perfect as an enchanting showpiece at celebrations of all sorts.
The versatility of this cake is endless. Whether it´s a haunted castle for Halloween, a princess castle or medieval castle for a child´s birthday party all you need is some imagination and a selection of candies.
With the Romantic Castle Cake Set, much of the work of "building" intricate castle parts has been done for you. Start by baking and icing a two-layer cake. Then add the turrets, windows and doors as you like. You can make the castle simple or more complex as you wish. There are plenty of options with all the parts provided in the kit.
Then comes the fun part – decorating! Using a variety of colorful gummy candies or your own favorites, accent the castle with goodies. Add a line of gummy bear soldiers defending the castle from the roof and a moat full of multi-hued fish.
