Our cute neighbors were having birthdays this week so I pulled out my new Nordic Ware Castle pan and made a Sandcastle Cake for them.
The cake is made with a yellow cake mix using this recipe here.
The “sand” is 1 pack of graham crackers which I ran through the food processor until sandlike.
The chocolate shells are made from Wilton Candy Melts and a shell shaped mold.
I didn’t want to frost the cake and hide all the castle features so we gave them a tub of Cool Whip with Oreos in it to top the individual pieces of cake.
Happy Birthday Addi and Alex!
This is such a cute idea!
Thank you, can’t accept all the credit, it was on the Nordic Ware website!
I love this idea! I wonder how it would work with a thin coat of buttercream, then the graham cracker “sand”? What do you think?
I think it would be really difficult to get the frosting on and retain the features of the castle which is why I didn’t put any frosting on this cake but it would be fun to try and see if it works!
