Cool Edible Rapunzel Tower Cake Submitted by Leanna

Rapunzel Tower Cake

This Rapunzel tower cake was my first time working with fondant. I’m not sure why I decided to attempt such a tall and detailed cake! I knew I wanted everything to be edible because I like the idea that you could eat every part of the cake. I remember I had hardly any tools to work with and I had stayed up late trying to figure it all out. My husband was gone a lot that week and I had to wait for the kids to be in bed.

My Dad came to the rescue when I expressed I needed a support bar in the cake. He went out and made me the stand. I used washed out chicken cans for the size cake rounds I needed and a couple of 6 inch rounds for the base. Then I had cardboard rounds in between every couple of layers that I ended up supporting with spaghetti noodles of all things. I would not recommend because I didn’t have any dowels and it was too late to go to the store. Read more about this Rapunzel Tower cake…
