can anyone please tell me the best way to make the tower on a castle? Like one on each corner, to tall 2 use RCT. I'm stumped??? Also what do u use to make the cone on top. Ps. It will ne covered in fondant.
For the tops of the turets, (towers, I used ice cream cones. For one of my cakes, I couldn't get the rice crispies smooth, so I tossed them and grabbed paper towel rolls and wrapped them with fondant. It worked in a pinch. Hope that helps some.
I used styrofoam tubes that I found at Hobby Lobby, wrapped them in fondant and then used ice cream cones on top of the towers. I used toothpics pushed into the sides of them to hold them onto the cake.
I also used the styrofoam tubes from hobby lobby and for the peaks I used those sno cone cups. I actually took some from the gas station lol. I used royal icing to secure the cones to the pillar and used dowels to hold the pillars on the cake.
I used rice RKT on one I did recently..turned out pretty good.
You could always roll the RKT around an appropriate sized dowel and let harden (push it down evenly in a pan and let it get a little set before rolling). You can put toothpicks in the RKT to anchor it into the cake. You can coat them with candy melts to make smooth, then attach fondant. Just an idea if you want to do RKT...
