Cake Decorating Ideas for Sand Castle Cakes

A sand castle cake is the focal point of a princess theme party or any celebration about medieval times. You can purchase a sand castle cake at your local bakery and request certain touches or features that make the cake different. For instance, if you would like a pink and purple castle cake, make this request. However, you can also make the cake yourself if you have the proper castle moulds. Speciality cake moulds are found at cooking supply stores or online.

Brown Sugar Sand Castle Cake

A sand castle cake sprinkled with brown sugar is ideal for a beach party theme because this cake simulates a real sand castle made from actual sand. Make the cake using castle cake moulds. After baking, spread frosting on the cake with a spatula, and then sprinkle with brown sugar. The frosting needs resemble the colour of sand as well because the brown sugar will not cover every inch of the cake. You can dye white frosting brown with food colouring or use caramel as your frosting.

Jelly Bean Sand Castle Cake

The jelly bean sand castle cake is a colourful display of sugar and frosting. The cake uses castle cake moulds and white frosting. Sprinkle white sugar on to simulate sand. Scatter coloured jelly beans in several locations to create more colour. The jelly beans should stick to the frosting.

Ice Cream Cone Sand Castle Cake

An ice cream cone sand castle cake features upside down cones and parts of the castle. The cake consists of three tiers that stack on top of each other. The bottom tier is flat and circular, the next tier is smaller and the top tear is smallest. You can decorate the cake with white or chocolate frosting depending on your preferences. Sprinkle brown or white sugar on the cake to simulate sand. After the structure of the cake is complete upside down, place ice cream cones on each tier. The highest tier has one at the very top, and the other levels have several cones placed to resemble a castle.
