My cousin Jade, 11 had a project that she had to do for school involving castles. As part of the project, she wanted to make a castle cake and as I made cakes she wanted me to help. She sketched out the design of cake, and insisted that she wanted to do the majority of the decorating. No problem, I thought less work for me. I made the cakes - a madeira cake and an orange chocolate marble cake. I covered the cakes in green sugarpaste. Jade made the castle out of rice krispies treats and covered them with grey sugarpaste. She made a fence out of chocolate orange MatchMakers and dyed piping gel blue to make water.
This is how it turned out:
She got an A for her project and the plus side was that it was edible!!
