Princess Castle Happy Birthday Cake

09 Sep

We celebrated Riya’s 5th Birthday yesterday with her kindergarten friends. She was extremely happy and excited and literally counting days and nights for her birthday. I think for kids at this age, every next year they are getting into, is quite an excitement. So to surprise her, I made this Princess castle cake and she did love it. I used my cake recipe from here. The whole idea started from here but I used my own decoration. Though it didn’t look so perfect, I was glad when Riya identified it as castle cake. Over the castle tower I did spray dark pink color. The Frosting I used is a  Butter cream icing.

Here is the Recipe for Butter cream icing.


  1. Butter – 1 cup
  2. Shortening – 1 1/2 cup
  3. Powdered Sugar – 1 1/4 cup
  4. Pink Food color – few drops
  5. Milk – 2 Tbs
  6. Vanilla Essence – a little


1. Add Butter and shortening in a bowl and beat it with a electric mixer until frothy.

2. Add Sugar little by little and continue whisking.

3. Add milk and continue whisking for about 10 – 15 minutes.
