Great job!
Thanks so much! This is actually the cake that I was thinking about when I was asked to do a Wizard of Oz cake. I just haven't seen the blog about it. I appreciate it!
I've been asked to do a Wizard of Oz cake for a friend of mine. I am in need of a template to do a "Dorothy" shoe. All of the templates I've seen on CC are for backless shoes or slingbacks. Does anyone have a template for a "pump" or any tips/suggestions? Thanks!
PLEASE!!! and Thank you!!!

I layered an 8" round on top of the 9 x 13 towards the top. I started carving from the top down towards the bottom cake, to give the shape of the head. I used a 4 inch round for the nose and carved more of a slant on the side closest to the top of the deer head, and more...
I found the recipe for "White Trash". 2 cups plain Rice Krispies cereal2 cups Cap'n Crunch cereal2 cups mini marshmallows1 large jar dry roasted peanuts2 2lb bars of white almond barkMix all ingredients (except almond bark) in bowl.
