Wilton has a Romantic Castle Cake set for $ 20.99 with 3 sizes of detailed turret towers and removable peak pieces, 6 lattice windows, a paneled door and main roof peak. A very convenient set, I thought. better than building the tower myself.
Without any planning whatsoever, I estimated no more than 2 hours to decorate the cake but I was so so wrong. Even with 2 people working on it, we spent 7 hours to finish the cake.
Here's behind the scene story:
First we make the fondant flowers.
|countless little and big flowers|
... disaster ...
Then we covered the peaks with fondant.
Gluing the flowers and adding leaf icing to windows, doors and turrets was the most time consuming process.
It was almost done ... It looked good as it was ... but we felt something was missing.
The flags added the fullness and realness of the castle. And off course the beautiful princesses.
I saw these adorable hats on etsy and I had to have it on the next princess party.
