Yasmine's Official B'Day Cake (Princess Castle Cake)

Like I promised, here I am posting Yasmine's Official 2010 Princess Castle Cake. Assembling the cake was a bit challenging, but I made it.
All the decorations apart from the kit were 100% home made marzipan, given we are an almond-lover family; I sandwiched the cake with my favorite White Chocolate Mousse, that I discovered chez Hanaa and loved when I tasted the Chocolate Apricot Roll with Lacquer Glaze, another HCB favorite.
The white outer frosting layer is made of whipping cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla & almond flavoring. the cake itself is a three 15'' by 11'' carrot cake, adapted from Sweet Melissa's book.
Enjoy pictures..!!

Oh my gosh, this is wonderful! I've seen this kit at the cake supply store and wondered how it was made. Your daughter must have been so happy with her birthday cake. Well done!

I like the new look of your blog!!! I'm sure you're not surprised I like because you know the color brown is my favorite color :o) I like that it has a world map on top. After all, you are a pretty well-traveled individual :o) Looking forward to seeing more posts from you after your vacation, iA.
