Hello everyone,

I would love to surprise my 21 year old daughter with a "Stonehenge" shaped cake. She went to the U.K. on a high school trip when she was 17 and I would to surprise her with a cake when she returns from her third year at university. Does anyone out there have any ideas? Should I use rice crisps & marshmallow to shape the stones? If I do, do you think I should dip them in melted chocolate so they look more like the stones? The stones should be grey so perhaps I should dip the rice crisps in runny powdered sugar and water then roll them around in some colored sugar. I'm not a great cake decorator but I love to experiment. Thanks for any advice.

I would prefer using rice krispies covered in fondant. It will still achieve the look of the stone although it would be a challenge to make it look like the actual stones. If you have an airbrush then this would be an easy task.

good luck

I also prefer fondant to cover the rice krispies. I think if you dip them in chocolate you'll just have something that looks like rice krispies dipped in chocolate. The cereal will be light enough that you can achieve the look without the weight. I LOVE using rice krispie treats for "sculpting".

GOOD LUCK!

Definitely fondant over the RKT.

Wilton if you're not going to eat it.

Satin Ice (My personnel favorite) if you are.

Post a picture when done.
You can do so much with fondant. It sure would be easier with the
fondant to put the correct colors you will need.
Good Luck icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif
