I am far from an expert, but an idea would be to use the wilton castle kit and get the beauty and the beast figurine set from the disney store or local toy store.

I tried to google what the castle looked like and every picture was different. If it was brick I read that some one used tip 12 and piped on dots and smashed them down a little once they crusted for a brick look on a castle. I just did the castle cake with the kit and it was alot of fun.

If you have a Michaels or AcMoore near you they have the coupons for 40% or more off every week.

My castle is in my pictures if you want to look.

Good Luck Shirl

Here is a link with a drawing of the castle (it's the 1st link) and could give you an idea of where to start.


I did the same as MrsLev557 and also found different pictures. Perhaps you could look at the drawing and some pics and come up with your own version?

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
