My daughter has requested a castle cake for her 8th birthday. Any ideas would be great. Cheers.

use jam rolls or choc rolls for the pillar type things on the front, ice-cream cones on upside down for the pointy bits, depends how big you want to make it, also use a good serated knife for cutting and shaping. Make up a butter cream icing and have fun. Chocolate fingers for the doors. I used to love doing kids birthday cakes, my poor boys though were lucky to get one from the supermarket.

I got it off www.howdini.com and then made my own version.

I did one with a round sponge

Ice cream cones - the ones with flat bottoms, cut the bottoms off (about 4 cm from the bottom) and turn them upside down.

Iced the sponge and the cones in one go (butter icing).

Put on a tray, iced the tray. With green butter icing with coconut - looked like grass/field
and with blue butter icing as a pond.
, upside down ice cream cones (using only the bottom of the cone) for towers.
