For the towers, I used the plastic containers that the Great Value water mix-ins come in from WM. Covered them with fondant/gumpaste. Then used ice cream cones for the turrets. I have seen some turrets covered in fondant circles to look like tiles, which I like better than what I did. Next time, with more time!

I wanted my castle cake (see my photos) all edible so for the towers I used 2 ice cream cones glued small end to small end with gum glue. Then I covered in fondant. For the turrets I used the waffle cones. I tried a few different things- piping gel, melted choc, syrup.... I tried to save time and avoid having to cover them in fondant. And in the end, I would have been best to cover them in fondant, coat with piping gel and then sprinkle the sugar on. HTH
