I just finished with my SIL's wedding. icon_biggrin.gif She wanted a bull's head on the groom's cake. Her hubby does rodeo roping. I could not figure out how to pull it off until I watched Duff on Ace of Cakes use rice crispies to make something 3-D. Wow that was the solution I needed. Here is how it turned out. Let me know what you think.

Love it! Did you freeze your rice krispies before you carved them? It looks just awesome!

That looks great! icon_biggrin.gif I need to start watching that show more often. I don't get the chance, usually because between the kids and husband, the tv is usually otherwise occupied.

Congrats on a job well donsicon_biggrin.gif

Thank you all. No, I didn't freeze the rice crispies. I didn't carve them either. I just formed them and shaped them like using clay.

The groom was thrilled and his mom took the head home to freeze or something. It was pretty funny.

one other note about the cake... it's made from stacked layers of chocolate chip cookies. The groom doesn't like cake. icon_eek.gif Everyone was suprised to see layers of cookies when they cut it. It was a big hit. I learned that trick on CC. I can't remeber who posted the cookie cake idea, but it was great.

What do you mean by layers of cookies? You just stacked cookies up to the top & iced them with icing? What a brillant idea!! You must do a tutorial!!

You did a great Job!! icon_biggrin.gif

Ace of Cakes with Duff is one of my Fav shows. I record them all and review when doing a cake. I saw the one with rice crespies and I tired to do standing elmo but the weight of the rice crispes were to much and it ended up falling appart.

I also love that you did the cake with cookies. I love cookies over cake and will have to supprise everyone some day on my birthday when I make my cake with cookies.

Ok. I tracked down the orrigional post that gave me the idea for a cookie cake. It was by Edencake and it is great! http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopic-20047-0.html

She does a great job explaining that, but if you have any questions let me know. Also, I did a groom's cake with stacked brownies for another non-cake-eating groom. I'll post the pic in a few minutes.

You did a great job on the head!

The cookie cakes are really easy....I do them a lot, and people ARE really surprised when it's cut. You just bake big cookies in your regular cake pan, stack wit hbuttercream in between them, and ice like a normal cake. I Like to do four layers of cookie with three layers of filling.

Thank you all so much! I cut the cookie cake just like regular pieces of cake. It's very rich, so you don't need much!

Jen1977, that's what I did too. It works great!

Here is the brownie cake that I did it was a hit too. It had chocolate ganache fillling between the layers.

We just learned the rice krispy treat at the WI ICES Spring DOS. One of the demonstrators uses the same rice krispy treat recipe on the back of hte box, but she runs the rice krispies through the food processor so that they are more fine before adding them into the marshmallows.
