Terrific Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle Cake

Sleeping Beauty Castle Cake

This Terrific Disney Sleeping Beauty Castle Cake was made by Cuteology Cakes. This Marvelous Disney Cake is based on Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland.

The walls and towers of the castle are a gray brick pattern with some bricks painted light blue and some painted gold. There are black windows on some of the towers. The Portcullis, or heavy grilled door, in the front of the castle is gold. The spires and slanted roofs of the castle are shiny blue brick.  Several of them have little gold balls on top. The very top of the middle section of the castle is pink and the tallest tower is pink with a blue top. The outermost towers are gray brick with gold brick on top and then blue spire tops. The turrets are pink with blue spires on top and a small gold ball on top of the blue spire. There are two gold framed windows in the front of the castle above the Portcullis. There is a golden object just above the doorway on the cake that in real castle is the Disney Family Coat of Arms.

The cake board is covered in green and has a cobblestone walkway leading up to the castle door. There are green bushes beside the castle. 

The cake is over two feet high. The cake board is two feet by two feet. The castle and cake board are decorated using fondant and gold details handprinted onto the castle.

I wanted to mention a piece of trivia that I happened upon while researching this cake. Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle has a working drawbridge that has only been publicly raised and lowered twice.  Once in 1955 when the park opened and again in 1983 when Fantasyland was rededicated. It is the only Disney castle with a working drawbridge.

A friend of the baker made a edited picture of the cake to show fireworks and a nighttime sky behind the castle.
