A princess always needs a castle

The little girl I babysit turned 4 this month, and of course I needed to make a cake for her. I wasn't surprised to find out that she had requested a pink sparkly castle cake, which was just what I made for her. I made a two tiered chocolate cake, with tinted vanilla icing. I used toilet paper rolls covered in saran wrap and icing for the towers and waffle cones covered in icing and pink sugar for the turrets. I also used waffle cones for the doors and windows of the castle. For the finishing details, I piped ivy all over the cake to make it look more natural and more like a castle.
I was happy with how this cake turned out and so was everyone at the party.
