When my son asked for a "Crush the Castle" cake for his 4th birthday, I was at a loss. Then I found this easy castle cake plan! I adapted it for a boy, using chocolate frosting and pirouette cookies for a drawbridge. It turned out great! I even included some little knights, a catapult (with Whoppers candies for cannon balls that the kids shot at the castle cake), and a big green dragon hanging off one of the castle turrets:
This year my daughter is asking for a "Princess Peach Castle" cake for her 3rd birthday. I'll be making this one again, with white and pink. It takes a little bit of time to put it all together, but it's so worth it!
