That's right, an entire cake made solely out of cereal treats. It blew my baking mind.
I immediately thought: cake dummies! I've been wanting to invest in some cake dummies for some time now, but really, I make all kinds of models out of this stuff. Why can't I made a cake model?
So I did! I whipped up some sticky gooeyness and shaped it to my needs. Then I got out some leftover royal icing I had on hand and practiced a technique that creates a folded ribbon effect.
How fun is that? I had a great time working with the icing and though there were a few imperfect places, I feel much more confident after all the piping practice...after all, practice piping makes perfect piping...right???
I still have a ton of dummies left - and can't wait to try more ideas I've been sitting on.
