I also forgot to say, that the turrets, the pointy bits on the top of each pillar were made with gumpaste, as they need to be rolled out a lot thinner than the pillars. I made the shape in cardboard, and then cut the shape in paste, and put it over my cardboard shape covered in plastic again, until it dried. I could have done them one by one, but i just made the whole lot in cardboard first and covered them all in gumpaste, and then let them dry for a couple of days. You can then stick them to your pillars with royal icing or a small piece of softened fondant.
And your cardboard shapes can be used again next time you make a castle.
