Anwar's Castle Cake/Gâteau Château d'Anwar


I am not a great cake maker but when Kamal and Nassim wanted a castle cake for their little brother Anwar's first Birthday, I had to look for ideas.  I love cakes that have no plastics or any artificial stuff being used as part of decoration i.e. everything is to be eaten without any part of it left :).

Kamal, Nassim and I made this cake from the Cake Decoration Book "No-Time Party Cakes" by Carol Deacon, see the book below.  It was a great help, we just followed the step by step instructions and it was fun.  This cake was a big challenge, it took us a while to put it all together. We baked the round Madeira Cake one day before and the sugar paste decorations (the baby in yellow, sleeping :), green elephant, doors, windows and leaves) were made in advance and were just added the day of the party.  It was fun and a lot of work but well worth the effort.  Happy Birthday Anwar Nowara!  Love you all! Hugs and kisses!

I love the ice cream cone turrets for this cake, it's so detailed it must have taken ages. I bet his eyes lit up when he saw it.

Happy Birthday to Anwar. He is sooooo handsome; I want to send him a hundred kisses.

Your cake is beautifully decorated. I can't imagine the time and talent that it takes to make a special cake like this. His eyes must have lighted up with delight at the sight of it!

Well done!
