Rapunzel Tower Cake

This cake took me about 20 hours to make but I love the way it turned out. There are some things that I wish I did differently but over all I'm happy with it. I'm especially happy with how my figurines turned out, I'm still trying to perfect faces!

The 8" cake is marble with cookies and cream filling. There's a wooden dowel that runs through the entire thing, from the bottom cake up into the tower.  The bottom part of the tower and the roof is made of rice krispy treats and are covered in white chocolate, buttercream and then fondant. The middle part of the tower where rapunzels is in the window is styrofoam....I didn't want the tower to be too top heavy. Everything is edible except for the foam in the tower.

Rapunzel's face took me so long make....She ended up in the garbage a few times but I finally got her the way I wanted. Rapunzel is made from fondant and is 100% edible

Flynn Rider is all 'Tangled' in Rapunzels hair. It took me awhile to get him to look like a man lol. He doesn't look like Flynn from the movie but I tried.
As an after thought I was thinking I should have put a 'Wanted' sign for Flynn Rider on the tower and put Rapunzels chameleon pascal on her shoulder. There's always next time :)
