This year, Teddy was having a Sugar Rush party (from the movie Wreck-It Ralph) and I wanted to make something that resembled Vanellope’s, Princess Castle.
‘A quick google of Princess Castle cakes and oh my gosh, there were some EPIC results that looked way out of my budget and skill level. But after hours of scrolling, I did get a few ideas on how I could simply put something easy and affordable together with just a few supplies from Woolies.
‘I used the Woolworths Marble Block Cake, as it already had pink frosting on top, and the Woolworths Red Velvet Cake both from the bakery section. There are heaps of other colours and flavours in both these style cakes to suit your need/tastes.’
Olivia says she then frosted the cakes using Betty Crocker Strawberry Frosting before the fun job of decorating began!
‘Once it was all frosted nice, I popped the Essentials Ice Cream Cone Cups around the sides to start the towers,’ she says. ‘I also cut one cone halfway up the base to use as the middle tower.
‘Then I used some of the leftover frosting and pipped it into the top of the cones to act as a glue for the waffle cones. You could also melt some white chocolate to do the same thing.
‘I then popped the Woolworths Select Mini Waffle Ice Cream Cones on top of each ice cream cup to make the rest of the towers.
‘From here, it’s really just a free for all on how you’d like to decorate. I used Sshmallows White Mini Marshmallows and Dr Oetker Rose Icing Decorations. But you could do whatever you liked really, and I had some awesome screenshots of other peoples hacks after seeing ours with Disney Princesses and sprinkled towers etc…’
Olivia says the whole cake took five minutes to put together - and was clearly a big success with little Teddy! We couldn’t love it more!
