I've never made something that tall and skinny - but when I made a lighthouse I used food-grade wood doweling rods that were drilled into the base to keep them firmly placed.  I have also used balsa wood that I covered with alfoil (for food protection) when I needed something wider than a doweling rod.  Balsa wood is light and firm so will give structural support without adding significant weight to your finished product.

I think the rice crispy treats would work a treat (;)) for structural integrity - BUT it will make your finished product quite heavy!

Let us know how you get along - would love the see pics of it when it's done.
