I am going to be doing a castle cake using the wilton romantic castle kit for my daughters upcoming birthday. I was just wondering if any of you out there that have done a cake using this kit have any advice for me?? I just want to be prepared for any troubles/problems that may come about. Thanks so much in advance!!

I have only done one of these and it was last week. The customer didn't need that many servings, so we did a 6" and 8" round. It doesn't work well with only a 2" difference in tier sizes. I guess if I would've placed the 6" to the back of the 8", it may have worked. Since there was only a 1" ledge, I wasn't able to use the roof piece and it made the cake look a little off. I didn't attach the turrets until I got it to the site, so I just used bc and it worked fine. Lots of people have had trouble traveling with the turrets in place, so I didn't even try it. I did the 3 on top at home, then saved the side ones until I got there.
