I have been selected to make a cake for my grandfather's 90th birthday. I would like to make a rather large 3d Golf Ball sitting on 1/3 of a "tee" on a green. I was thinking I would make the "tee" out of rice crispy treats. I am not sure if I make the normal recipe on the side of the box (rice crispies, marshmallows, butter and vanilla) or if I need to add something to the recipe to make it stiffer in order for me to carve the tee and for it to add support to hold the golf ball. I think I recall something about adding corn syrup but I have no idea how much.

Does anyone have any ideas? Please help ... I need to get started on Thursday Jan. 15.

Thank you

i would suggest having some dowels down in your tee to suppor the weight of the ball or it might sink under it.

Thank you Sharon ... I thought about that something like that. Good idea. I also read that the cake should be a pound cake .. I guess I may have to practice.

Thank you
