Princess Castle Birthday Cake

I enjoyed making this princess cake for Olivia's 2nd birthday. This cake didn't turn out looking perfect, but I knew my little princess enjoyed it!:) She wore her Cinderella dress for the occasion and looked beautiful in it!

Since I knew the decorating would take a lot of time, I just stuck with the box cake mix and icing.

Princess Castle Birthday Cake
idea from


You'll need 2 rectangle cake pans, 2 round cake pans, and a cupcake pan.
4 boxes of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Funfetti Cake Mix
3 containers of Pillsbury Funfetti Frosting
desired candy decorations: candy corn, Hershey's chocolate bar, gum drops
small plastic Disney princess figurine (I found mine at Dollar General)
5 pointed ice cream cones
foil cupcake holders
icing decorating bags and tips
food coloring to color icing to desired colors


1. Follow the directions on the Pillsbury Moist Supreme Funfetti Cake Mix. Divide the batter accordingly:
one box- one rectangle cake pan
one box- one rectangle cake pan
1/2 box- one round cake pan
1/2 box- one round cake pan
one box- cupcakes
*Use five cupcakes on the cake and reserve the rest for a "cupcake making station" at the birthday party. You can save any leftover icing and candy bits to let the children decorate their cupcakes with.

2. Allow the cakes and cupcakes to cool completely.

3. Add icing and decorate as you desire.
