I made this cake for my daughters 4Th birthday. The turrets and princesses are from a kit I got off eBay. It took the hubby and I HOURS to make it. I was stressing hard core on the drive to the party I would die if it broke apart but it made the journey just fine. We ended up using 3 cake mixes and 4 recipes of buttercream icing. Oh and we totally cheated and used premade sugar roses. No matter how hard I try I just cant make my roses look good. I also didn't cover the cardboard cake boards with foil so we had a damp spot all around the cake from the oil in the icing I guess. That's why I put that edible glitter all around it. It was alot of work but totally worth it to see her face.

That's so much cooler than the store bought cakes my parents always got me. That turned out really great! Your daughter is adorable, btw. It looks like all the kids love it.

Ooooh! I totally love this! You did a fantastic job. My ma used to make my birthday cakes and they mean a lot cuz I still remember the different cakes she did. One year I got a swimming pool cake. Now I kinda want a princess cake, but it'd be a little weird cuz I'm almost 18....

You did a fantastic job. You can tell by the look on your DD face that she loved it. It's so nice that your husband helped you. My husband is great like that too. Some husbands just don't want anything to do with that kind of thing.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

That cake looks fantastic .. and I'll bet it cost LOADS less than the $75 that the bakeries in Seattle charge for a cake with that princess kit! I'll bet it tastes loads better too! Homemade RULES and I'm hitting this Rocks... cuz you do!

Thanks for the love guys!!! It was much cheaper to make this cake ourselves and it looked better than if we bought it from the grocery store. The store here wanted 50 bucks for it. My friend bought one from them and I thought they did a crappy job. The kit was 14 bucks and about 16 in cake and supplies. I would totally suggest this kit for anybody with a little experience with cakes. It was not really hard if you know your basics and have the right icing tips already. It was tedious tho. I could not have done it without my hubby. I have to thank Ace of Cakes on food network for his intrest in cake decorating  Wink We go all out!
