Castle wedding cakes for a fairy tale wedding. Getting married in a castle?
Having a Renaissance or Gothic theme wedding? What could be better than these whimsical confections?
This classic design below is very traditional looking and is made with mostly butter cream decorations. The center tier is a hexagon shape which lends itself well to the architectural feeling of a castle.

The cake shown above is made using fondant and hand painted with gold dust and other colors. This is more of a whimsical design, yet very elegant. The figurines are most likely made of gumpaste, which dries harder than fondant. The towers on the castle look almost like ice cream cones decorated with gold dust.
In all of my years of baking, decorating and designing, I have yet to receive an order for a castle WEDDING CAKE. However I recently made this cute cupcake castle creation for my grandson Braden.

The fountain is a nice touch for a majestic cake. This design has two satellites and appears to be all buttercream decorations. There is Christmas greenery around the base, which leads me to believe it is a Christmas or winter wedding cake.
