Hi there I'm making a walle cake and I'm struggling with they eyes I have made each one separately out of rice crispie and marshmallow mix but I'm struggling to stick them together and have them sit correctly on the cake any help would be appreciated!
Hello! I'm not sure what you mean? What kind of trouble are you having?
I have made each eye and covered in fondant I thought I could use a cake pop stick to secure them together but they just keep falling off. I'm also having trouble deciding how to have them sit above the cake I thought a dowel would work (covered in fondant) but now I'm not so sure. Hope that makes more sense. I have attached a picture of what I'm aiming for.
Did you use melted chocolate to secure your sticks into the rice crispie mix?
it's just adorable -- you need a long 't' structure to attach the eyes to and then stick it down into the bottom board -- like wire two skewers together so they won't budge, cover in chocolate to protect the cake from the wire -- attach the eyes like shockolata said and slide it down the throat there --
but depending on the weight of the eyes you might want more of a 'Y' to hold them up better -- but see i would have made the structure first then attached and decorated it all kwim -- cart before the horse a bit -- something like that maybe -- if you can get the 't' or 'y' in there and stick another skewer into the neck to hold it from another angle that might work depends on what the neck is made of --
Hi thanks for replying.
I hadn't thought of using melted chocolate I might try that.
i thought the rice Crispies would be light ebough that it wouldn't need a frame. It might be the angle that I've got them at. I'm thinking about staring again and making some sort of frame and making the eyes a little smaller!
The neck part on the picture I posted is at an angle and I'm not sure how I'll achieve that. I had hoped to use more crispies
