Make small balls of grey fondant, and put caster sugar on them so they would not stick together.
Roll them roller to make a stone impression.

Stick them on the tower piece by piece.

Use some of the grey also on our house if needed. I made the wall too short, so had to add some of the grey to make it taller.

Make the roof. It does not matter which color it is; it will be covered later. Shape a curve for the window using a roll of kitchen towels.

Cut small squares of two shades of violet and layer them on the roof. Finish the roof with a bit of brown to make nice edge. Leave it to dry completely.

Make wood impressions  on brown fondant, and add decorative trim to the house and window shutters.

Put some fondant on the bottom of the house to stick it to the tower. Make a support so it will not fall down.

Check it to see if it looks okay.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My daughter requested this cake for her birthday at the end of the month, and your tutorial will be infinitely helpful. Your cake is perfect!

Thank you so very much for taking your time to do the tutorial, it's awesome!!! quick question. I assume the tower is inserted into the cake at the bottom, but what's the support so that it doesn't fall? does the cake holds it? ok, thank you!!

Thanks to everyone for commenting or just looking. Rosie, it is true that it is quite heavy. I put support as for a second layer of cake and stuck three long wooden sticks to hold the position.

What a beautiful cake piece, it would work for a little girl of any age for their cake. You did such a lovely job on this !

Wow! This is gorgeous!! I do have questions though. How long and wide did you make the wall and the roof and the circie for the base? Thank you for sharing! I want to make this for my best friends grand-daughter next month. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful work!! :)

Ivab, thank you so much for this tutorial! It inspired me to make my own version of the tower for a Tangled cake as well. It was heavy but it stood on it's own so well that it stood inside the cake perfectly. I actually only carved a hole in the cake half way in and then just pushed it in and it held wonderfully. Please see my finished cake below. Thanks again!

Thank you for posting this tutorial. My daughter is Rapunzel mad at the moment so I had a go making this tower for her 4th birthday cake - my first ever attempt with using fondant! It took me a few attempts but I was really happy with the result. The link below is a photo of it . Thanks again for the great tutorial :)
