I am makinga castle cake and I have wrapped paper towel tubes with fondant to create the turrets. I need to glue the turrets to the side of the cake which is also covered in fondant. If I want to use royal icing to glue the turets, how long should I expect it to take for the icing "glue" to dry?

Couple of hours....but overnight would be best.

I always use the 24-hour rule.

Depends on the amount of RI, smaller portions dry faster than thicker ones. Swirls and small flowers dry really fast. But Im one of those that believe over night is best..

If you need it to dry faster, what about using candy melts??
