Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: base/log is made from rice krispie treats, frosted and coated with melted chocolate to make it look like bark; amber is made from hard candy flavored with carmel and toffee with actual edible bugs (crickets, weaver ants and winged weaver ants) embedded in it; twigs are chocolate covered pretzel sticks and Chinese noodles; gum pasted plants (plus real fern leaves); battery operated candles to help highlight the bugs

Now that's daring! Very clever idea. Great job! I hope it was a huge hit.

It was very well received :-) I knew that the boys would want a piece of a bug ... but was a bit surprised when the girls joined and and several dads! It was fun.
