First time to ever use the Wilton castle cake kit, and it turned out so cute! The cake is a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, and all the little decorations were buttercream as well. I have to admitt, seeing all the little pieces that came with the kit, freaked me out a bit, but once I started, I got into my "zone" and I think the cake turned out stunning! In the picture, the pink looks more orange than it should thanks to my camera! It is a hot pink however!
