More than likely you are going to have to design your own. Now don't get too excited, just yet.

There are several models on the internet. You will want to take elements of several to get where you want to be. There are gates, walls, towers galore. Get a picture in your mind of what you want to build and then look for the elements to build it. Are you wanting a textured/color model, or is this something that is going to be iced over?

There's a module-style castle available at

WWW.Fiddlersgreen.net

He also has a nice tower in the "Storybook houses" section.

I am wanting them to look just like the ones I have pictured. Solid white cause icing will be used on some, and some just left solid white.

I think ask some designer on here maybe one be happy to help. I would try but not done any designing reallly. looking at them pictures the nine inches tall would be best if you broke it down as say 1 and a half inches for the wall with gate have the cones for the roofs about the same length. then the cylinders for the towers i have not figured them out so much but lets say 7 inches high for the biggest one with a radius of two inchs the lower one near the front i think the same sort of radius and the other towers i would think be best at a radius of between 1 and three quarters for the ones that go along the circular wall. That thought of i think the idea now be how to start this. well what size base do you need if its nine inches you want it about four and a half inches at most then the wall to be a little bit smaller

Go here and download the PDF version of the booklet. Don't use all the parts and build it more compact. Scale the whole thing to your preferred size.

I think combining the parts you need, using the .pdf''s rescaling properties, you could make a model in no time. If you print a model to file, you could use Paint to take out the color. If this is jst a one off, this may be your best option. This could be done in a couple of hours if you put your nose to the grind stone.
