Happy Birthday, Kaida, Elaina, and Pip!!!

I know three sweet little girls who are all having a birthday this month. Elaina and Kaida are turning 4! And Pip just turned 1 this week!

I was in Hobby Lobby one day and saw this...

The Romantic Castle Cake Set

Well I knew I had to get it! I mean it's the cuteness!

So I decided to make a modified version of it. It's kind of a cross between the super uber princess castle and the medieval fortress.

So I've been working on it for weeks. (Obviously very slowly.)

First I made little dragons out of sculpey, because every castle needs a dragon! Or three!

Then I made ALOT of marshmallow fondant. Actually I made about twice as much as I needed. LOL Oh well! You can never have enough fondant right? :D

Then the real work started this week. I baked the chocolate cake for the top layer first and iced and covered it in fondant. I tried to marble the fondant, but I'm not that skilled at fondant yet so I had to roll it so many times i just turned pink instead of pink and white marbling. LOL Oh well it turned out pretty darn well. hehe Then the next day I did the yellow cake for the bottom layer. After that I had this...

And to be quite honest...I was worried. I mean it looks like a giant took a couple pieces of bubble gum and chewed them up and stuck them together.

But once I added the towers and the doors and windows and everything it started coming into focus.

Then once I got it all flowered up and decorated...

It turned out pretty adorable if I don't say so myself. I can't wait to see how the girlies like it!!!!
