So I need to make a Minnie Mouse Hat similar to this, http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1184809 any suggestions on how to achieve this without making the hat a cake??
I'd do the dome base of the hat in rkt and the ears from gumpaste/fondant blend shaped over a styrofoam ball. This is a cute little cake, think I'll try it for my niece's bday.
Thanks! But what is rkt??
Rice Krispie treats yum! I've found rkt are great to add to any cake so many people are on gluten free diets.
I made mine out of the rice krispie treats too, then covered it in fondant. I even made the ears out of the rkt. I put three toothpicks in the bottom of the ears so I could push it into the top. Moisten the bottom of the ear to act as glue. That also helps keep them in place.
You could use gumpaste. I made a hat shape one by forming the gumpaste around a the inverted bottom small greased bowl
Boy do I feel silly!!! Lol!!! Thanks! RKT (Look how cool I am now that I actually know what that stands for ) would work great! That way it's completely edible!
Any tips on how to make the fondant smooth when putting it over rkt???
