I MUST figure this out! Too Cool!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
ok all you guys and gals out there. I found this awesome pic of a tiered cake made out of rice krispies and I must make one of these. It is so cool. Ive been trying using my homemade treats and they are coming out way too white. I will try to post the pic of what I want it to look like and it doesnt look so white. Ive already cut the marshmallow way down and it is almost not enough to stick the cereal together. Thought I would ask for any other ideas of how these get done![/img]

I can only think of three options:

color the marshmallows (with your gel or paste colors) or
use cornsyrup or a cooked sugar syrup like they do with popcorn balls or
buy the packaged sheets, as they look close to this.

just use the commercial RKT, pack them into a 4" deep pan and stack em up. You might have to line the pan with parchment to get them out.

I agree with previous post - seems like a lot of rice treats but that's what makes it WOW

You can also tell that photo has been edited a lot. Their rice krispies may not have been as brown before the photo was edited icon_biggrin.gif

Also, I think it would work to airbrush them.

But question for ya- if it is the commercially made ones or made with corn syrup or whatever, wouldn't the texture be kind of disappointing?
I like my treats ooey and gooey, otherwise they hurt my mouth.
I don't like the ready made treats from the box just for that reason.
This cake is awesome, but I would want to chew my screen more if I could see marshmallow...

I agree, ready made sheets of RKT would be one way to go.

I worked as a cook in an assisted living home and for teddy bear day I had to make 50 teddy bear cutouts out of RKT. I used the ready made 32 oz. sheets.They were very easy to work with and to me, at least, tasted really good.

You can buy large sheets of ready made RKT.
One place I found that is pretty reasonably priced, is fancyflours.com.
You can also find them on Amazon.

I would look around for the best prices. And I do agree, airbrushing would give you the color you want.
HTH!

I just made a RKT pyramid with my niece for her school project. We wanted it to look more like dirt, so we added some brown color to the marshmallows when melted and before the cereal goes in. It worked pretty well. HTH

Yep, color your marshmallows. I did it for a castle RKT cake. Be prepared to mix really well so the cereal takes on enough color to be uniform.

Maybe its a cake with a RKT border around it?

I think the photo was edited to correct colour balance etc icon_razz.gif

Thanks all! I am really wanting to do this for a dummy cake for a show so at least I can just use the ready made treats to cover the styrofoam dummy. I cant wait to see what it looks like!

I think it looks like a border, too- you can do yummy goey treats, then coat the outside with corn syrup or something sticky and cover with rice krispies for the same effect.

Hi everyone!!
When I saw the pic, this is what I though because I have learned a lot from you guys,( think out of the box)
Could it be that the person just put the Rice Krispie cereal on top of the icing that she cover the cake with it??? Its a though icon_wink.gif
