This may be a stupid question, but i'm clueless at this time icon_lol.gif
What can you cover/apply to the tops of the towers? I've seen several cakes on here that are so cool, but don't know what people use.

I used Royal icing. You could use chocolate, candy, fondant, gumpaste or alot of different things.

I think people cover ice cream cones with fondant... Wilton sells a kit too. I have no idea if I answered your question...

I'm talking about the wilton castle kit.

diamondsonblackvelvet13, is there a recipe for royal icing, or do you buy it pre-made, I have never used it.

dunce.gif I'm such a goof, I did a search in the recipe section and found these royal recipies. I'm excited because this year my daughter wants a sassy girl party, but with a castle cake, so I'm going to incorporate the theme colors into the cake, and make it a sassy castle! icon_biggrin.gif A very fun cake i'm anticipating icon_lol.gif Thanks for the help, I would have never thought to try royal icing. icon_smile.gif

I used fondant on the one I made for my daughter. The Castle Kit has patterns in it, so I used them to cut out my fondant. I brushed it with water before attaching. It was also easy to remove (so I can use the kit again).
Good Luck!!
