Enchanted Castle Cake

'Enchanted Castle' Cake, made for a Disney Enchanted Forest themed 21st birthday party.


The young lady who this cake was for wanted a castle cake with a difference, where the turrets appeared to be coming out from a garden of flowers, predominantly in pinks and purples. There were roses, Cymbidium Orchids, Lilies, Hydrangeas, plus lots of buds, filler flowers and leaves!


There was also a smaller cutting cake that accompanied this cake, and was home to the 21 candles.


This cake has been weeks in the making. All up (and yes, I counted) there were approximately 170 handmade flowers/buds/leaves that went onto this cake! So so so much work. It was quite difficult for me to visualise how this cake would actually look, but I must admit I am thrilled with how it turned out! Although I really enjoyed making it, I was glad to send it on its way, as flowers have taken over many rooms of my house in recent weeks, and with young kids around, that's a nervous few weeks!


The function room looked very pretty, with tortured willow lining the perimeter, fairylights strung in all the willow, and coloured tealights everywhere. The birthday girl is studying Interior Design. It was a dress-up party and she had the most EXQUISITE Tinkerbell costume that she made herself. She looked like she had flown straight out of the movie - I must upload the pic I took!


Now if you've read all that, you've done well - thank you! :)
