Castle Theme Cakes – Creating a Medieval Themed Birthday Party

Castles are known as being highly fortified structures that were erected in various locations around the world throughout the Middle Ages by those that were considered to be of highest nobility. Many castles were used as primary residences, while other castles were used by military personnel and as a means of protecting a certain region.

As you explore the pictures that we have uploaded to this page, you will find that there are cakes that reflect fortified military-type castles, castles that are fit for royalty and castles that are similar to those found in fairy tale stories. If you are interested in creating a castle birthday cake, we encourage you to study these pictures for ideas.

Castle Princess Cake

My daughter loves castles and we happened to be living in Denmark at the time she turned two. This is a cake my mom made for her two-year-old birthday party. We lived in Copenhagen at the time, hence the Danish flags on top of the towers.

The cake consisted of two round cakes and the three towers that were made from cardboard paper towel holders with fondant rolled around them. I made half circles out of the fondant and rolled them into the cone shapes and allowed them to dry. We thought about using ice cream cones, but they were not very easy to attach to the top of the fondant tower rolls.

My daughter was thrilled since Denmark is full of castles and she wanted one for her birthday cake.

Enchanted Castle Cake

A Castle Cake fit for a princess. This Castle Cake was made for a little girl that had recently been adopted, so this was to celebrate her special day. Of course, you could make this cake for any girly occasion.

This Castle Cake was made with 6, 9 and 12-inch butter cakes, with strawberry and Bavarian filling.

I iced the cake in white buttercream , but it could be done in blue. I used the Wilton Castle Cake Set pieces and covered them in fondant that I had embossed with my Cobblestone Mat. I also used the mat on my cake to give it the cobblestone look. I airbrushed the cake with blue and super pearl luster dust mixed together.

The top of the turrets were made by a rolling pin. Then I used my template from the Wilton kit to cut out the pieces to fit .I attached all the castle parts with white chocolate.

The fun part of this cake was all the flowers. They are all made of fondant and the hearts were an added detail. Grass tip (#233) was used for the border of the cake and then the leaf tip for extra accents. This was such a fun cake to make.

I love this family and wanted to make this cake so special for them. I am so glad that this princess found her castle!

I made this Princess Castle Cake for my daughter's 5th Birthday. I used the Wilton's Castle Cake set. This was my first cake - it took a while ;)

I used a box mix that I modified a little. The bottom tier is yellow cake and the top tier is chocolate. Both tiers have buttercream filling.

All 250 of the flowers are made out of fondant.

I would still consider myself a beginner. I've been making cakes for about 2 years.

Here are a few tips for completing this Princess Castle Cake:

1. Try different color combinations.

2. Give yourself plenty of time to make this cake.

3. The towers are best secured with melted white chocolate or royal icing.

4. Attach dowel rods to the bottom of the towers.

This cake was made for my manager's 4-year-old daughter. I choose a princess cake because she (my boss) always calls her daughter (her little princess).

I made two 8-inch round cakes and a smaller cake using a round stainless steel bowl. I used a regular cake mix. I got the castle pieces from Wal-Mart.

I decorated the castle pieces with sugar and food coloring using a thin paste made out of powdered sugar and water and used a pastry brush to paint it on. Then I sprinkled the sugar on and let it dry for a day. Then I used my flower decorating tips to put the flowers and leaves on. Then I stacked the two round cakes on top and stuck them together with icing. I used the small cake for my princess dress and stuck a doll in the middle and decorated. My boss said her daughter's eyes lit up like a Christmas tree when she saw the cake. It made her fourth birthday very special.

This year was definitely in the top 5 of Eleri's magnificent cake experimentations.

She has a fantastic knack for getting it just right every time. Unfortunately the photograph is bleached out quite a bit, so you can't see the homemade unicorns, clouds, grass and mushrooms around the edge that were painstakingly made out of icing the night before I was presented with it.

The turrets were Swiss roll, and the two-tiered cake itself was dark chocolate sponge and a fantastic cream chocolate filling.

My sister and I have gotten into cake decorating and friendly competitions between us during the holidays. We made this cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. It was very easy, we followed a kit made by Wilton. Only took a few hours in prep work the week prior and about 1 1/2 hours the morning of to assemble and detail everything.

Princess Castle Cake

I made this Princess castle cake for my friends' daughter's 3rd birthday. She loves the Disney Princess. I made the cake from a kit. You can get the Disney Princess kit pretty cheap from EBay. My friend wanted me to cut down on the amount of cake to use so the 2nd & 3rd layer of the cake is made from Styrofoam. I would not suggest doing this with a kit cake. It made attaching the turrets hard. Other than that this was a fun cake! _____________________________________________________________

As you can see, there are numerous types of castle cake ideas here; however, for the purpose and intent of this article, we are going to focus on those that would be appropriate choices for a medieval themed birthday party. These castles are often strong, solid structures that provided ample living space for military personnel, such as knights, and offered a high level of protection for the areas where they were erected. While many were majestic – based on their size – their construction type and color did not represent beauty. They were often silver, gray, or even brown in color. Many were surrounded by water so that there was an additional level of protection when access to the castle was closed. It is important to keep all of these characteristics in mind in creating a medieval castle cake. The following guidelines will assist you in creating such a cake:

Instructions for Creating a Medieval Castle Birthday Cake

Items Needed:

  • Nordic Ware Palace Castle Cake Pan
  • Pack of Knight Figurines
  • Three Boxes of White Cake Mix
  • White Fondant
  • Two Bottles of Silver Fondant Glaze
  • Cake Painting Brush
  • Blue Fondant
  • Green Writing Icing
  • Extra-Large Square Cake Pan
    Step 1: Create the cake batter using the three boxes of white cake mix.

    Step 2: Prepare the castle cake pan and place the batter in the pan. Bake the batter and allow it to cool.

    Step 3: Place the cake on the cake tray – ensuring that you are very careful.

    Step 4: Prepare a piece of white fondant that may be placed over the entire cake. Once you have it prepared, cover the cake carefully.

    Step 5: Next, take the silver fondant glaze and apply it all over the cake, turning the castle a rustic silver color so that it appears realistic.

    Step 6: Next, take the blue fondant and create water around the castle on the cake tray – leaving the front area by the door open. In this area, use the silver glaze to create a little bridge.

    Step 7: Use the green writing icing to create grass on the remaining regions of the cake tray pan.

    Step 8: Next, take the knight figurines and place them around the castle on the cake tray.

    Creating a castle cake takes a lot of time and effort. This is mostly due to the fact that it is a large dessert that has many different angles. If you are able to successfully create this type of birthday cake, you'll of course want to take pictures of your fab creations and show them off! We'd love to see your castle birthday cake pictures! Once you have finished the dessert, take a few shots of all of the angles of the cake and then come back to this page and upload them via the submission link that we have posted. We look forward to seeing your creations!
