I am making my first castle cake using the Wilton Castle Cake Set and it is due Sunday afternoon. My questions are:

1. How far in advance can I do the outlining of the windows, doors and roof area?
2. Do I use buttercream for the outlining or am I supposed to use royal icing?
3. Do I use buttercream to cover the peaks of the turrets?

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks Jan, That gives better instruction that what came with the kit. From what I read, I understand that I should use royal icing for the trim work and such.

Thanks again.
