Have have seen so many cake challenge shows that where they use "cereal treat" for the base of the bigger pieces. Does anyone know what this is make out of? I don't believe it is made the same as the rice crispy treats.

I am actually at a cake show in Virginia as we speak....attending classes with some of the food ntework stars. And we talked about this in classes yesterday. And yes, some of them actually use rice krispy treats. And some make the recipe minus the butter.

Hope this helps

Yep, it's just RKT minus the butter.

I made a cake this past winter where I made an igloo for the top of my cake that I covered with MMF. I just made the dome igloo shape out of the standard recipe for rice krispy treats and pressed it into a bowl of the size I wanted for my igloo. I slid the treats out of the bowl and did just a tiny bit of reshaping to make it look a bit more like an igloo. It held its shape great and held the MMF well also. There is a picture of it in my photos if you want to see it.

giland - great job on the RKT igloo! I love the cake - especially the little penguins and the one drinking from the pond is hilarious!

You can buy a jar of marshmellow fluff...by the same people that make the marshmellows...can't think of the name right now...but it is pourable from the jar. Not pourable, but if you buy some, you will know what I'm talkin about.

You can also use the RKT that are already made, if you don't need alot of them.
