Hey guys! I know this question may seem super silly but I'm a newbie so I'm still learning icon_smile.gif I'm making a toy story cake for my nephew this weekend and I wanted to put a little moon beside buzz or put buzz on it - something like http://cakecentral.com/g/i/1635392/a/1636392/

 

Now people have advised me to make the moon out of rice cereal treats, but I tried and I'm just not getting the right shape. It looks more like a brain out of surgery icon_redface.gif Can someone give me some ideas or pointers on how to shape it better?

 

Thanks a ton!

How little? If it's small enough, just make it out of fondant.

 

Did you try grating off the rough edges of the RKT?

Can you form it in a bowl?

I tried but my bowls are low and wide, so they don't come out right icon_sad.gif

My top tier is going to be 8", so I wanted it to stand out, maybe around 4"? Give or take at least. I haven't tried grating though, I never thought of that icon_eek.gif I'll try it out tonight and post an update! Thank you!!

Make the RKT with less cereal, then you can take the handful and roll it into a proper ball on a clean counter.  You will have a smooth surface when you start with a slightly softer mix.

How much less cereal exactly? I don't want it to end up becoming a big mushy mess icon_confused.gif
