Aliyah's Princess Castle Cake
by Linda Brown
This didn't take long really... Have done a couple before. Used fondant only for tops of turrets, her name, and cut out shapes and applied. People don't seem to like the taste of fondant much so I steer away from using it on the cake itself too often. Watermelon flavored cake with basic buttercream frosting.

To create a splendid backdrop for photos and add to the princess ambiance, you might want to cover your walls with gossamer or princess-like fabrics.Party Food Ideas
