Simple castle cake for my Sofia


My second daughter turned 6 last weekend and I promised her that I will make her a castle cake. My initial plan was to make a fondant covered cake but changed my mind at the last minute because I wasn't sure whether the kids will like the marshmallow fondant and dense cake. So I stick the usual standard chocolate sponge cake with fresh cream. The birthday girl was ecstatic when she saw it and I am happy that the kids finished it up.

Happy birthday Sofia !

wow its beautiful! how long can the fresh cream stay firm in room temperature?

Thank you Nisa *blush*

Fresh cream usually can't stay firm for long esp in hot weather. If not under direct sunlight, maybe around 1hr is the max? You may want to add piping gel to stabilise it so that it will be able to withstand much longer in our humid weather.
