I just finished with my SIL's wedding. 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.
Peacockplace,you did an awesome job.The bull's head is very nice and all the chocolate with the strawberries looks yummy.I bet your SIL and specially your BIL were very happy.
Love it! Did you freeze your rice krispies before you carved them? It looks just awesome!
That looks great! 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 dons
Awesome job! I love it!
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. 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.
Kristy I love all your cakes & this one too!!! Excellent girl!!! Excellent!!!
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!!
Oh....TC !!!!!!!!!!!!! I have missed you. It seems like I haven't seen you here in forever. I think we just miss each other when we're on. Thanks for the kind words!
I agree with TC you must do a tutorial. I have never heard of a cookie cake.
BTW you cake looks great.
It's wonderful and amazing. I wish you had a closer shot so we could see the detail in this. Duff would be proud of you!
Wow that cake is great!
I dont get FN in my coutry, could you explain how is done?
You did a great Job!!
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.
Peacockplace--Duff would be proud! Your bull and cake look great! (And thanks for posting the link to the cookie cake--my two favorite things--cookie and cake!) Yum!
How do you cut the cookie cake?
That's fantastic Kristy! The whole presentation is top of the line
peacockplace, Please explain the ricecrispies part, I have no idea how is that done.
That is awesome. I see alot of clever tricks on his shows that I'm sure will
come in handy one day. I love Duff as well.
I totally missed the cookie cake post. Thanks for bringing it back up Kristy! I love that idea!! Girl, I've missed you too!! Your one of my oldest (not meaning your old just that I've know you the longest LOL) & dearest buddies on CC~ Going to PM you!!
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.
OH I LOVE U! 4 THIS!
IT IS MY HUSBANDS BIRTHDAY AND HE DONT LIKES TOO MUCH CAKE HE ACTUALLY TOLD ME JUST TO BAKE HIM CHOCOLATE COOKIES....
I WAS DESAPOINTED TO NOT MAKE HIM A CAKE!
HE SAID YOU COULD TO DO IT FOR THE KIDS...I JUST WANT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES HOW LONG I HAVE TO WAIT 4 U TO MAKE THEM!
BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN MAKING SO MANY OTHER THINGS...AND NEVER A CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE...
SO HE IS GOING TO BE SURPRISE NOW JEJEEJE
THANKS A LOT!
AND YOU BULL CAKE IT IS AWSOME! GOOD JOB!
Maisza, glad I could help! Hope it turns out great!
it looks great....odd but great. it looks yummy too.
Very nice job!
great job on both cakes. The bull head looks awesome and i love the presentation of the strawberries.
I really need to try that rice crispy modeling when i get back home.
paolacaracas... do you mean how to make rice crispy treats or how to make shapes with them?
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.
Girl, that cake is awesome!
