Cake and decoration



  1. In a bowl, cream the butter for 2 minutes with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the sugar, beating until the mixture is smooth. Add the colouring a drop at a time until the icing turns very pale pink.
  2. Cover and set aside.


  1. Stand 1 large cake in the centre of a large serving plate. Cut the second cake in thirds and stand the pieces around the first cake. Ice all surfaces of the cakes.
  2. Ice the small cakes one at a time, standing them next to and on top of the large standing cakes to form towers of various sizes. Ice generously to hide the seams.
  3. Using a spatula, smooth the icing, leaving vertical lines on the towers.
  4. Mix food colouring into the remaining icing until it turns dark pink. Place the ice cream cone upside down on top of the large cake to make a turret. Using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip, decorate the castle with icing. Make doors and windows with the wafer cookies and fruit leather. Decorate with candies and marshmallows. Make a drawbridge out of wafers and licorice. Sprinkle blue sugar around the castle to make a moat. Have fun!
