AI am wanting to make a smaller version of the sunshine to go on top of a cake [IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3276839/width/200/height/400[/IMG] I wondered what the best thing to make it out of is I was thinking of maybe a truffle mixture with cake crumbs ill have left over or maybe cake pop mix has anyone tried these ideas and has a recipe or has any other ideas was thinking RKT but thought using left over cake crumbs would be killing 2 birds with one stone!!! thanks

ANever thought of using cake crumbs for something like this but I guess you could, you would want to shape them, chill them well and then do a good buttercream/ganache coat before adding the fondant to give a very smooth surface. If you're going really small, then you could just make it out of fondant with tylose added with gumpaste rays around the edges.

Depending on the size of cake you are making I'd use the small Wilton ball pan or perhaps a small Pryex bowl both with a bit of carving. Remember to use a cake nail or hearing core.
