When Little Red Ridinghood said she wanted a princess tea party for her 7th birthday, I knew a castle cake was in order. We saw one that was adorable at our grocery store for $40!!!! That is to steep for my budget, so I decided to make my own. I know it is not all that great next to those who are cake making experts, but I am relieved to be done making this castle cake. It came out very much like I hoped it would. The corner towers are toliet paper rolls with princess Christmas wrapping paper and ice cream cones on top. I also used lots of princess figurines that we already owned. I dyed the coconut green with food coloring. Total cost for my version of a castle cake~$8. Now that is more like it.
Now I just have to put together the example craft and finish cleaning the house. Hopefully, I will be back with lots of pictures of her princess birthday party by the end of the weekend.
