Repunzel's Tangled Tower Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 9:10 PM
I made this cake for my bonus daughter's 8th birthday. We watched Tangled in theaters and we all loved it so much that Echo had to have the party be Tangled themed as well. This cake took HOURS upon HOURS to complete but I loved it in the end. I actually forgot what cake flavor this was because the tower took me so much time... haha.

The cake was covered in marshmallow fondant. I'm proud to say that everything on this cake is edible! I made the tower by covering a pipe with rice krispies and then covered them in buttercream and then covered that in marshmallow fondant. Lastly, I piped buttercream grass and placed little marshmallow fondant flowers on the tower. The house on the other hand, took some work. The whole house is rice krispies covered in buttercream and fondant. I shaped out the house and added an upside down ice cream cone on top to make the point. Then, I cut little purple, pink, and blue "tiles" out of fondant and placed them by hand on roof to make it look like shingles. I accented the house with windows, and fondant made to look like Repunzel's house in the movie. The trickiest part was to get the house to balance on the rice krispie tower. Wait, I take that back. The hardest part was driving 45 minutes to get the cake to the party all assembled in the car. It made it in one piece (YAY!).

Echo absolutely loved the cake and her friends loved it even more. It was so cute to see how proud she was of this fun cake! After the party, Echo gave the tower to Rosie (my best friend, originator of my business name, and official fondant maker) and I think Rosie still has it in her kitchen. Haha....
