Sand Castle Cake Tutorial
|Step 1: Cut paper towel cardboard tubes to desired length|
|Step 2:Cover tubes in gumpaste. Using a ball tool press into the gumpaste for the window|
|Step 4: Once you've attached your piece flip it upside down letting the inside lip rest on some type of support. Mine just so happen to be the perfect size for a spice bottle.Let dry for about 1hr.|
|This is what they will look like by your 3rd coat.|
|Step 6: Butter cream your square
cake and cut a small piece of each corner off. This allows the turrets
to rest against the cake. Since the turrets are not going to be
eaten I just hot glued them down to the cake board.|
Step 7: Now that your turrets are in place. Measure the length each side of your cake. Cut out a strip of fondant to that measurement. Using the same technique from step 3 cut out the square pattern on the top of the fondant strip. Attach this strip to the top of your cake with a little bit of water. Do this for all 4 sides of your cake.
Step 8: For the door all I did was use 2 square cutters. Cut out a large square piece of fondant then take a slightly smaller square cutter and cut out the center of the larger square. Attach the square with a little bit of water.
Step 9:To add the crushed cookies to the cake all I did was moisten the fondant pieces and start lightly pressing the cookie into the cake. To help this along I would press the cookies into the cake with a fondant smoother.
You might have to pipe extra butter cream into the turret corner to fill in any gaps then add the cookies.
I added white chocolate shells to this cake. I used a shell chocolate mold and filled it with white chocolate put in the icebox for a few minute to harden then added them to the cake.
There you go!
