Okay, this cake was an UNDERTAKING!!!! I even started out with 'blueprints'. I should have taken a picture of that! I had to know how many pieces I needed to make and where they were going to go once they were made. I was a little obsessive on this cake. I wanted it to be as close to the real thing as possible!
See all the pieces?! And yes, I used chap stick, a pen, a vanilla bottle and various sizes of paper towel cardboard tubes to make the towers. Use what you can. (NO TOILET PAPER ROLLS WERE USED!!!)
Rice Krispie treats for some of the pieces, and fudge striped cookies for in-between the tower pieces.
Hand made rocks and decorating gel make the water and finish the look!
Aerial view! (It was hard to find an aerial picture of the real Disneyland castle to figure this part out!)
Close up of some of the detail.
Happy Birthday, Ryleigh!!!
