A Fairy Tale Cake

A pop-up fairy tale princess cake!

Monday was a very special day in our house. My little girl turned four. I made this fairy tale princess cake just for her. 

She was so excited to finally turn four that one of the first things she says in the morning was “next I will be five and then six”…hmmm, let’s work on being four first!

Fairy Tale Castle Cake : Mommy Moment
I really love how this princess cake turned out! A princess cake for my little princess.
It took many hours to put together but it was all worth it to see the look of wonder on my daughter’s face.
Any cake would be a huge hit with kids if you put some toys on top, especially when it’s Cinderella, Snow White and Ariel. Everything else on the cake was edible.
Now, how to top this for my next kid’s birthday…

  13. Hi! My daughter loves this cake and wants me to create this for her birthday party in November. GREAT JOB!!!! It looks amazing. Could you please explain how you made it – we are stumped on the cylinder columns or castle portion of the cake? I would love to recreate this for her as a surprise. I can be reached at tlmswt2000(at)msn(dot). Thanks a bunch!
    God bless, Tracey

      Hi Tracy!

      Thank-you, I’m glad your daughter liked it!

      The book itself was a 9×13 and the round cake on top was a 6″. The cylinder columns are made with rice krispie treats. I rolled them into shape and let them dry before hand. Then covered with a thin layer of buttercream to smooth it out and then a sheet of fondant cut to size was wrapped around. You can make your own rice krispie treat or just get the premade snack packs and shape them. I put 2 skewers in the bottom of each one so there was less movement when the were placed on the cake.

      I hope that helps and have fun!

  14. All my respect for the work and passion you’ve put for this wonderful cake!

  15. This is really so cute and detailed. I love it! My daughter would die if I presented her with a cake like this :)

  16. This is beautiful. As a child I always dreamed of a “Castle Cake”!!

    August 19-I love this Fairy Tale Cake by Ena. I know that she spent hours on it just by looking at it. Thank you for giving us ideas to make our children’s birthday’s more memorable. el03ro

  18. Wow! This is so unbelievably beautiful! I’ve spent the past week looking at cakes online, as I really want to make a birthday cake for my sister at the end of the month. I couldn’t find any I particularly liked, but the minute I saw this I just KNEW I had to try and re-create it! She’s going to be 23… but what girl, of any age, doesn’t want a fairytale castle cake?! Would you be as kind as to give me some pointers? I don’t bake much, so I’m probably going to be out of my depth with this, but I just have to try it! How did you do the page detailing on the book? How did you make the cone shaped tops of the turrets? Any advice you can give me will be hugely appreciated!! Thank you, and once again – this is stunning!

  19. You MADE this?!!? You are SO talented!!!! Cake boss!

  20. You are an absolute genius. You should go on tv shows and in magazines. What city
    Are you located in. I am domestically challenged I.
