Laura's 3rd Birthday cake

Laura requested a princess castle birthday cake for her 3rd birthday!  I borrowed a castle kit from friends, and this is what I ultimately came up with!!

The top cake was lemon with fresh strawberries (as per the birthday girl's request!), and the bottom tier was chocolate with fresh strawberries.  Some of the fun touches were the sparkly pool of piping gel for Flounder, the food-spray paint on the pebble path, the sugar cube turrets, and the multi-colored sugar sparkles to give the windows a stained glass feel.  Oh, and swiping the princesses and their little friends from the toy box while the kid was sleeping ;)
