Someone loaned me the Wilton Romantic Castle Cake Set. I don't have any experience incorporating plastic parts into my cakes, but it seems to me the towers, turrets, etc. would be easier to handle if I frost them with royal icing rather than buttercream. If I do that, can it be washed off? Will the frosting color stain the plastic? I don't want to ruin this borrowed set.

Yes royal is better than b'cream; yes, it will wash off just fine.... BUT........yes, colored icing could possibly stain the plastic.
Check w/the people who loaned you the set to see if they would object to your icing it.

I have a question...how do you get the turrets to be smooth? My royal icing came out a bit stiff and it is extremely difficult to ice the turrets and framing the windows. Some of the icing (on the window frame) has already chipped off. I was going to make a less stiff royal icing but will the icing still chip off??
