This cake was done as a donation, and there's a sweet story to it. A friend of mine from college works in promotions for healthcare facilities. She called me with an odd request. There was a lady in one of the facilities she promotes whose only daughter was getting married in another state and the mother was in too poor health to travel to the wedding. So they organized a reception for her with a big screen and Skype so she could watch the wedding in real time. My friend asked me if we would be willing to do a small wedding-looking cake for the reception as a donation, for publicity only. Of course we agreed!
This is a white cake with 8" bottom tier and 6" top tier. Buttercream icing, fondant roses and sugar pearls.

Main castle structure is an 8" white cake. The turrets are devil's food snack cakes stacked and threaded onto skewers. The rooftops and tree are sugar cones. The pathway is lined with chocolate rocks.
The purple cupcakes are devil's food cake. The green cupcakes are white cake.
