THANK YOU!!!

if i were doing it, i would make a regular recipe of rice krispie treats, then mold the microphone in two separate pieces - the part you hold in your hand and the ball shape on the top. i would probably put a skewer into the base so that i could attach the ball to it afterward. ice and cover the bottom with fondant, black maybe? then ice and cover the top with gray fondant, i would probably paint it with silver luster dust mixed with a clear alcohol or extract, and then add the details like black criss-crossing lines after it was dry.

Thank you, crystalina1977
I was reading in the kellogs web site that you can keep it only for two days at room temperature, does that mean that I can not start until Friday? I need it for Saturday the 12th in the evening. Does it go stale if I do it sooner? I sure would like for them to eat it and enjoy!

if that's the main thing they are going to eat, I would say make it as late as possible so it's as fresh as it can be....but if it's a decoration going on a cake, i think you have more time. i don't think it's too complex so hopefully it's do-able in your time frame.

I would also add that if you make it with margarine vs butter, it will last quite a lot longer. My first thought when I read that you need to make a microphone is to follow the above directions -just a ball on top of a tube shape. Otherwise it might easily look like a male part, to be put into the adult only section!icon_redface.gif

When I made my last microphone I used the pre-made rice cereal that come in the box sold in the snack isle, it was the perfect consistency and did not go stale. I then covered it with modeling chocolate to make it smooth before adding the fondant.

I agree, the pre-made ones work great--and seem to have a shelf life of forever, so no "2 day" limit.

I nuke a group of the pre-made ones for just 5-10 seconds. I press them together really well until they're pretty compressed and then make the shape by pressing.

I'd do the microphone as one piece--much sturdier and don't need a support. I cover them in melted chocolate once I get the shape I want and put it in the fridge. After they're well set, I cover the shape in fondant or modeling chocolate and decorate.
