This may be a stupid question, but i'm clueless at this time
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.
This is the royal I used: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-1986-11-Witons-Royal-Icing.html
Alot of people swear by this. I have never used it so can't tell you:
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! A very fun cake i'm anticipating Thanks for the help, I would have never thought to try royal icing.
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).
No problem- Anytime! be sure and post a pic when you get it finished!
