Tangled Tower


This is a cake I created for a friend of mine's friend's daughter. She loved the Disney movie Tangled, and I was really inspired by the beautiful tower that she was kept in. This is the most detailed and time consuming cake I've done so far. The cake is supported by metal pipe on a heavy wooden base, connected with flanges. The pipe is covered in cereal treats, then covered in modeling chocolate. The cake is chocolate with chocolate frosting, wrapped in fondant. The roof is molded cereal treats covered in fondant. I stamped out hundreds of tiny tiles out of fondant, and most of the decorations are a fondant/gum paste mixture. I then painted it all with edible paints and added greenery with colored icing. This cake was super challenging, and I'm so glad it's finished!
