Ummm ... I think I have a problem. I have recently accumulated quite a bit of Wilton baking supplies. But it's not my fault. I have to make a princess castle birthday cake. No, not because Hannah begged me to. She could care less. Because I decided I HAD to make it. I am gearing up for the process. I have watched enough of those cake shows and Food Network Challenges to have this in the bag. I think. The plan as of now is to make the cakes tomorrow evening. Then Friday night I will begin the assembly. Haven't decided yet if I will assemble the whole thing here or put the finishing touches on the cake when we get to my dad's. I am just hoping and praying that after all the materials I have purchased, that I will be able to turn out a nice looking cake. You can see what the finished product is supposed to look like in the box there.
Step 1: tint fondant and cut out 300+ mini flowers
Step 2: after flowers dry, pipe a flower center into middle of each flower
Step 3: bake the cakes
Step 4: Attach dowels to towers with melted chocolate
Step 5: frost cakes and insert dowels
Step 6: stack cakes
Step 7: decorate cake with various colors of royal icing
That is the super simple breakdown. Some of the instructions read like a manual for assembling some sort of huge toy or something.
You can be absolutely 100% sure that if it looks OK, I will post 101 pictures of it on this blog. Hopefully I will remember to take some of my darling little 4 year old as well.
