I made this cake for my daughter's birthday party tomorrow. I was definitely a difficult cake to make, but it turned out o.k. for a newby cake decorator. My husband drilled holes in the towers, so I could stick a skewer or dowel rod though the cake to hold them still. The turrets are covered in purple candy melts and sanding sugar. The cake is buttercream icing.
This is more cake than we need, but she saw a picture and wanted one. It was fun.
