I am going to be doing a castle cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday this coming Sunday. I am going to be using the wilton romantic castle kit for the first time. Can anyone give me any tips on this? Or any heads up of any problems I might come across? Any tips on dowelling? I just want this cake to be really special for her! TIA for any help!!

Will you be traveling with this cake? If so, I would advise you to put the turrets on when you get it there. I used buttercream to stick them in place, but some people drill holes and dowel them. Maybe this will give you a bump and a more experienced castle decorator can help you out.

A word of advice for the not put them in place unless you do not intend to move the cake! Attach them with royal icing too.

I made this cake for my grand daughters bday in March. I had to attach the towers to both the board and the cake with royal before it would stay in place.

As for doweling...just do it as you normally would.

Good Luck and have fun doing it
