|Palace of Sweets|
|Feature films||Barbie in the Nutcracker|
The Palace of Sweets is located right at the top of one of the highest mountains in Parthenia; an excellent defensive position since no attackers can sneak up on it. It is a large castle, at least two stories high, with an enormous tower at its centre. It is surrounded by high walls and boast an enormous courtyard.
During the Mouse's reign, the Palace is coloured in dingy shades of gray and purple. However, once Clara defeats his spells, these colours are replaced by bright shades of pink and yellow.
The Throne Room was presumably used by Eric's family in earlier days. However, in the movie, it is the Mouse King's base of operations. He spends most of his time sitting on the immense throne in the centre of this room. To his left are a table and a bust of himself. To the right is a desk on which a map of Parthenia is normally placed.
The throne and these items sit atop a raised platform at the back of the room. A red carpet stretches across the tiled floor, leading to the Mouse's throne. The room is surrounded by pillars and features windows looking out onto a dismal courtyard (featuring many victims of the magic scepter). The room also contains various places for the Mouse to store his petrified victims, such as a cupboard for "paperweights".
The Nutcracker, Major Mint and Captain Candy are taken here after falling for one of the Mouse King's traps. It's a small, circular room with no furniture in it. The only source of light comes from the barred window beside the door, which looks out onto the corridor. The dungeon can be reached by a spiral staircase.
The courtyard is the place where the Nutcracker has his final battle with the Mouse King, as well as the location for the victory celebrations. It is a huge courtyard; a main, paved area is in front of the castle, with a huge pink fountain at its centre. Leading off from this is a similarly paved path which stretches across the lawn to a gate in the castle walls.
Since the Palace of Sweets is so huge, it is presumed that there are a lot of rooms there which just aren't seen. For instance, in one scene the Mouse King mentions the Royal Library - however, he has the books brought to him in the throne room. There also appears to be some kind of docking station on the edge of the castle; Clara uses it when the fairies bring her to rescue the Nutcracker and the others. However, it is never specified what this is traditionally for.
