Cake Week: Princess Castle

This cake is totally inspired by Mary Jo Albright (see her site: Her castle is posted April 1, 2008. A big shout out to her! This is my version. I used a 3/4" Square punch to create the "castle tops" and a 1/4" Square Punch for the Windows. The Word Window Punch was used in the second cake layer. The total height, from the cake base to the top of the Heart pole, is 4-3/4".

Here's the back of the cake: there are windows all the way around.

A close-up of the cake: Greenery all around the base of the cake is made by using the Trio Flower Punch. Iridescent glitter was added to them. The "water" around the base of the cake is cut by using the Circle Scissor Plus - dial the diameter to 3-3/4" and it cuts perfectly to fit the Big Shot Scallop Die.

  • Stamps: none
  • CS: Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Real Red
