Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats, Chocolate and Strawberry Cake, Icing, fondant, gel food coloring or airbrush colors. Wooden base & coreboard for cake boards

What are you most proud of? My grandson loved it!! As you can see he was taste testing already - then he bit the "cats" nose - such a goof ball!!It was very structurally sound, this was the same base that I had used for the topsy turvy cake so I knew it would travel well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When making the rice krispy treat head don't compact the krispies so tight that its a rock. I packed the warm/gooey krispy treats in a bowl approx the finished size needed & let the marshmellows firm up, then cut to shape - what you cut off will always stick back on where needed. You may need to remove a center core of cake prior to sliding it over the cake support - if you dont the cake might split in half. For your base board...remember to put some feet on it so you can pick it up easily!! I screwed on 4 rubber door bumpers - they work great.

Awesome job! I also did a Cat in the Hat smash cake a few weeks ago. I may post it.

How do you come up with a price? I do cakes not even close to as fancy as any of yours. For some reason I find fondant intimidating.

i price per serving, carved cakes are the same but calculate how much cake you need prior to carving versus the finished cake. you might need 40 servings to stack & carve to make a 20 serving cake. as for fondant, it can be frustrating even for me some days, but i still prefer it. i make my own but i bought Satin Ice once to see how commercial fondant felt to work with. if you find your getting a lot of elephant skin then add some modeling chocolate to the fondant. be sure to mix both separately before combining. contact me on Facebook if you want - Deanna Briggs in Gillett PA
