Dreamy Castle Cake

After featuring the adorable Puss in Boots cake earlier this week, I thought we’d continue on with the fairytale theme for another day.  Just long enough to bring you a this!  Exactly what kind of cake is created for the wedding of two animators at Dreamworks?  One with a classic damsel in distress, who fears a fiery dragon while a loveable ogre and his donkey race to save the day?  That sounds about right!  Shrek and Donkey, please meet Sleeping Beauty and her dragon.  Today’s featured cake is a fantastic fantasy created by the team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes.  Once upon a time there was this Dreamy Castle Cake…!

Shrek Castle Cake

The team at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes shares some background about their design:

“The forest scenery, princess and dragon is all from Sleeping Beauty.  Then we add Shrek and Donkey who are running up to the castle to fight the dragon to save the princess.  Classic.

This was one of our favorite cakes because of all the layers of complexity:  it was airbrushed, painted, fondant decorations were stuck on, we then painted and airbrushed on the fondant decorations and then stuck on 3D figurines all on a topsy-turvy, spiral road cake with a castle, princess and a dragon on top.  Annnd we delivered it to an actual castle.  Pheww that was fun!”
