I want to create a large cake that looks like a bowl of cereal ...... I need suggestions especially on making the milk look realistic. I need all the help I can get folks creating on Friday! I saw a few pictures but not a whole lot so please HELP your thoughts comments and ideas are greatly appreciated.
what kind of cereal does he like? I'd use real cereal on top of a cake shaped like a bowl with icing for milk.
ACaptian Crunch berries so that's a good idea to use three cereal. ... but how should I spread the icing to resemble milk?
Aoh my gosh thank you so much and couldn't find anything sample to follow
AWhat pan would u all reccomend?
Mornin', if you google cereal bowl cake, you'll find several tutorials...some looked like they were baked in oven proof bowls and one of them started life as a bundt cake (you'd have to build up the low spots). Whether you use fondant or buttercream, I think a darker colored bowl (like the blue one) will give a better contrast between the "milk" and the bowl.
I made a bowl of mac 'n cheese cake and baked the cake in a 1.5 qt glass bowl. I think that would make the perfect size cereal bowl.
AWhat size pan? Well, how much cake do you need? Is there a serving amount you're needing? Wilton has serving charts that can help you figure out what size pan you'll need.
AIt's his cake the groom only so doesn't have to be that big
AI don't think the bowl should be way out of proportion to a normal bowl... You could always do the box of cereal out of cake for more servings
AIf you use real cereal, I'd suggest you do a practice run the same number of hours before. A local grocery store offers donuts with fruity pebbles and I fell to the temptation of the bright colors. They'd absorbed moisture and were soggy and disappointing. However, his cereal is sturdier and may be fine.
