Castle cake – Kid’s easy birthday cake

       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.

  1. Mix everything together to form a thick paste. Store in refrigerator till use. Allow it to come to room temperature a few minutes before using it so that it will be easy to apply.
Recipe Notes

      I also bought a readymade chocolate frosting jar of betty crocker's . I mixed it and my chocolate buttercream icing and applied it over the cake. And used only the homemade chocolate frosting to pipe the bricks of the castle.

    For the pink colour, I did not add the cocoa powder and used a few drops of rose pink colour instead.

I am sending this to crazy for cakes event hosted in priya's blog.
