I'm making a castle cake and while I know that I will be wrapping PVC for the actual turrets, I'm not sure how to make the tops for them.
I've searched and it comes up with nothing for the forums although I'm sure this has been asked before.
Any help you can give is appreciated!
Lots of people use ice cream cones (the pointy ones) wrapped in fondant or gp and then decorate them.
I made one and used two cake cones for the towers (glued end to end) with a sugar cone for the turret.
If you're interested, it's in my pix-close to the end-maybe even on pg.2.
I've used cones for the tops of the towers. I've used rice krispy treats for the towers with the cones on top.
I've also used ice cream cones. The kids love them.
You can just use fondant too. I made whimsical turrets for my towers and used fondant. Youtube has a few videos on it which is where I found the idea.
You could also use candy melts. You can use parchment paper to make a cone, tape it together securely, and melt the candy & pour in. Pop in the freezer to dry. This will work as long as the cake will not be in a humid or hot climate. Those things melt SO fast in humidity or heat.
I use icecream cones or card stock poster board for the larger and smaller ones. Then cover in fondant.
pink cake box has a you tube video of them making a castle cake, especially the turrets. I remember it looked super easy. Search on you tube for it.
