Can someone tell me where I may find instructions on how to make a cute castle? I have an order for one and I have no idea how to do some of the stuff. Thanks!

About a year ago I did one that I kind of made up as I went along-with some help from the great folks on CC. I used cake or wafer cones, glued end to end for the towers. I covered them in melted candy melts. I used sugar cones for the turrets, also dipped in candy melts and rolled in colored sugar. I used fondant accents-doors, windows-and piped royal and bc vines and flowers. I also used an impression mat to make the brick pattern.

It's in my pix if you want to see...towards the bottom, I think-or maybe on pg. 2

I just did one, I used the Wilton Kit, covering the tops of the turrets in melted chocolated and colored sugar. I think it looks nice, however the turrets would not stay in place and I had a hard time securing them. has a tutorial on a castle cake that I think I will use next time.

I also used the Wilton Castle kit. To keep the towers on I used dowels, which is described on the wilton webcite forum if you search castle kit. The cake came out amazing!

Hello! I've done a couple castles and learned a bunch along the way. They are both in my pictures, I chose to go with a little different style than the norm. I used the door and windows from the Wilton kit and made the rest of the stuff, I really liked the way they came out. Just let me know if you want to go that direction and I would be happy to help you out! icon_smile.gif Andrea
