    Now attach the two empty paper towel rolls to either side of the cereal box with duct tape. Make sure you stick the rolls firmly as they will be the pillars of the Candy Castle. Smaller boxes can also be attached to the side of the empty paper towel rolls or on the back of the cereal box to give the castle a more authentic look.

Cut the tips of the cones and place three lollipops in them to give the look of spires in the castle.
