Castle for a princess
- 1Preheat oven to 130°C/260°F. Grease and flour deep 23cm (9-inch) square cake pan and deep 15cm (6-inch) round cake pan.
- 2Make cake according to directions on packet. Pour enough mixture into each pan to fill to three-quarters. Use any leftover mixture to make cupcakes for another occasion. Bake cakes about 1¼ hours. Stand cakes in pans 5 minutes; turn, top-side up, onto wire racks to cool
- 3Meanwhile, to make butter cream, beat butter in small bowl with electric mixer until as white as possible. Beat in sifted icing sugar and milk, in two batches
- 4Tint butter cream pink. Level cake tops, turn square cake, cut-side down onto 36cm (14-inch) square prepared cake board (allowing space for drawbridge); secure with a little butter cream.
- 5Using one of the biscuits as a guide, cut rounds out of each corner of square cake with a small serrated knife
- 6Secure round cake to square cake with a little butter cream; cover whole cake with butter cream. Stack six biscuits, joining each with butter cream, in each of the cut-out corners of the cake.
- 7Using scissors, trim waffle cones to sit flat, position one on each corner and one on the top of the castle to make towers
- 8Remove candy rings from bracelets, position four rings on each lollipop stick, gently push lollipops into each tower; position flags. Position sugar cubes using picture as a guide
- 9Using scissors, trim wafers into shapes for windows, door and drawbridge; position on cake.
- 10To make chains for drawbridge: cut 2 bamboo skewers to about 12cm in length. Position a Mallow Bake at the end of each skewer to hold the candy rings in position. Slide the candy rings onto the skewers; using picture as a guide, position on cake.
Remember to remove the skewers from the drawbridge before cutting the cake.
