Chichi's Little Princess Cake

My Princess Cake
The only things I didn't make in this princess cake are the princess doll and the trees behind the 2 towers. I made the castle facade from styrofoam, painted them with acrylic paint and glossed it with glue.
The design on the windows and door and castle borders are detailed with pink glitter glue. The two towers are made of carton tissue rolls which I painted and glossed. The cones & banners are cut out from cardboard, then glued to a toothpick, painted and glossed with crystal glitter glue. A string of gold beads was wound on toothpicks for the railings.
The roses, apple blossoms & little violet hearts are made of royal icing. The pink and violet stars are also made of royal icing, sprinkled with colored sugar crystals, then attached to white floral wires. I made these ahead of time.
As for the cake, I baked a 10x14 single layer decadent chocolate cake, then frosted it with 2 kinds of icing. First is chocolate ganache, then white boiled icing. I feel that the white icing will not do justice to my decadent cake like a chocolate icing can.
I applied a thin pink icing on the top for a two-tone effect and beads-on-a-string border then placed small grass details on the bottom of the towers, steps, and castle with green icing and the tip of a pastry bag snipped off.
Next, I scattered star confetti on the sides of the cake. I placed two rose bouquets with leaves underneath using a tip 67 on either sides of the cake. I
I used red gel for the birthday greeting. Stars on floral wires were placed on the sides of the two towers to represent fireworks. A cake is born out of pure ingenuity and imagination!
