Looks spectacular! You achieved a great likeness. I really need to check out his class!

Thanks so much. I was hoping to get more hair on him but my bed was calling me at 1:00 am the night before the party so he had a nice styled hair-do instead! The Bobblehead class was great! I would highly recommend it!

So, which parts of him are cake ? The head? Just curious :)

In the class Mike does the head and torso out of cake. I used cake in the head, then Rice Krispie treat for the body. The arms and legs are modeling chocolate.

I also purchased Mike's tutorial on Bobble head cakes but have not the chance yet to do a cake like it. Your Einstein looks very good. About how many slices were you able to get from it? What happened to the rice Krispy body and modeling chocolate parts, were these eaten too?

To be honest, I don't know how many slices I managed to get out of the cake. It was for a family party and I ended up giving large pieces to many of my neighbours after the party. We did eat the body later on in the week as well as the modeling chocolate legs and arms. The rice krispie stays quite fresh when it's covered in fondant.
