The client sent me a pic of a tower cake but said I could do whatever I wanted as long as it had a tower. So the challenge was figuring out how to make the tower without power tools or major hardware. I need up using a thick dowel through the whole cake that stuck up taller than the cake by enough to put the tube & topper on. I made the topper of an ice cream cone & Styrofoam so it would be very light. And the tower was a paper towel roll covering in plastic wrap & fondant. I attempted to dry a tower in gumpaste but I knew I had to drive very far & decided to got with the most sturdy option. I consider using RKT but decided to save time doing it this way & also keeping it lighter. I used molds & impression mats to decorate the tower & hand painted. The client was wow’d & it was quite easy to do. I love when a cake is painless to make!
Thanks for looking!
