I have had so much fun baking all kinds of castle cakes with my little ones, it has to be their favorite dessert to help create.

When using this pan make sure to coat it very well in a non stick spray or some kind of oil. This ensures that your castle cake will come out all in one piece. Make sure that your cake batter has a smooth, equal consistency. If your batter contains bubbles it will flaw the design and your castle may not come out correctly.
After cooking you should allow your cake to cool before removing the pan. If you follow these directions your castle cake should come out flawless every time. After baking comes the real fun, decoration! My favorite morsels to top the castle cake with are sugar pearls, multiple colors of icing using a piping bag, different shapes of sugar cookies, and chocolate chips. You will have so much fun with the castle cake pan!
