So here comes the actual much awaited birthday cake. As I am a novice in cake decorating, I wanted a simple and easy cake and something which will make my kid happy too!! I found a variety of castle cakes in the internet and that looked easy as I was able to decide how to create a shape of my own.
I made 2 recipes of the basic vanilla cake which yielded- 1.One 9″square and 6″inch round
2. One 8″inch round and a few cup cakes and a loaf(which I did not use in this cake).
I placed the 8″round cake on the square and then the 6″ round over it after crumb coating each of them seperately. I then frosted chocolate buttercream icing over the whole cake. Next I piped door and windows with the pink colour .Then piped some chocolate buttercream icing all over to create the brick like effect. I then placed some cupcakes on the sides with the chocolate icing on it. Just an hour or two before the party, I placed the icecream cones on the cupcakes and on the top and decorated them with M&Ms.
