Additional Information

Step 1

Two to three days in advance: Make fondant children. Add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 10 oz. fondant. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Use cutter to cut five boys and five girls. Adjust arms to change positions. Also make easels: Cut one 3/4 x 2 in. rectangle for each figure. Let dry for 24 hours on cornstarch-dusted boards. Use FoodWriter markers to draw black outlines and details; color in using assorted FoodWriter markers. Attach Crayon Candles and easels using fondant adhesive. Let dry.

Step 2

Also in advance: Make fondant-covered towers. Tint fondant: 6 oz. each red, blue, green; 2 oz. black; 4 oz. each light red, blue, green; 3 oz. each violet, orange, yellow; 2 oz. each light violet, orange, yellow. You will need: one medium tower for top green crayon; four small towers for middle yellow, orange, red and blue crayons; four large towers for bottom red, blue, green and violet crayons. For increased stability, attach dowel rods to bottom of medium and small towers. For medium tower, use a 5 in. dowel rod. For small towers, use 6 1/2 in. dowel rods. Turn towers upside down; attach dowel rods using melted candy. Refrigerate in upright position until firm. To make crayons, roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick as needed.

Step 3

For each large tower, cut a 6 x 5 in. rectangle in light color and a 1 x 5 in. strip in dark color for bottom. Use dark color to cover peak with a 5 x 7 in. strip and turret with a 10 x 3 in. strip. Attach using damp brush, shaping and trimming as needed; cut and remove fondant for notched edges.

Step 4

For each small tower, cut a 4 x 4 1/2 in. rectangle in light color and a 3/4 x 4 in. strip in dark color for bottom. Use dark color to cover peak with a 4 x 6 in. strip and turret with a 7 x 2 in. strip. Attach as above.

Step 5

For medium tower, cut a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 in. rectangle in light color and a 1 x 4 1/2 in. strip in dark color for bottom. Use dark color to cover peak with a 5 x 6 in. strip and turret with a 8 x 2 in. strip. Attach as above. Cut 1/4 in. wide black stripe details. Attach using damp brush.

Step 6

Finally in advance, Cover board with 24 oz. rolled fondant.

Step 7

Bake and cool 3-layer cakes (trim 6 in. cake to 5 in. high). Prepare and cover with rolled fondant. Prepare for Stacked Construction.

Step 8

Use toothpicks and patterns to mark: four top tier castle sides; bottom tier castle front and three bottom tier castle sides. Use FoodWriters to draw black outlines on cakes and board; color in and add details using assorted FoodWriters. Insert large towers and attach children using fondant adhesive.
