Rainbow Fairytale Castle cake tutorial by Paul Bradford

Who could resist this cute, colourful, gravity defying cake made by CakeFlix resident designer Paul Bradford. At first glance its the fairytale castle’s gravity defying position that catches the eye, especially as its hovering at the tip of a rainbow structure. How did he do it, well all is revealed and much more in this tutorial.

In this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • Create a welded metal structure
  • Design and create a floating castle cake
  • Add simple trees and flowers for extra colour and depth
  • Neatly ice a colourful rainbow

Fairytale castles are very popular cakes for children of all ages. Looking back at some previous castle cakes on CakeFlix there is a great selection. If you are ever looking for a tutorial on CakeFlix its always best to start with the search function at the very top of the page.

If you search for castle cakes on CakeFlix you will find Paul’s amazing Enchanted Castle tutorial, the gravity defying Christmas Fairy Castle or for beginners the Fairy Castle tutorial.  Its not just Paul, the super talented Sidney Galpern created an amazing Isomalt Castle tutorial for CakeFlix.

There are so many different skills and techniques that go into making all these various structures, but once you have learned them, they can be used for so many different designs. The only limit is down to our imagination. You can create dowelled stacked cakes or create a wooden or metal structure to achieve a gravity defying effect. Check out some more Gravity Defying designs on CakeFlix.

Once you have the structure, you can spend as little or as much time on the decorations as you like. Only time and your imagination are your barriers, but if you want to create a show-stopper design then you’ll need plenty of time, imagination and CakeFlix tutorials!
