Coleman lantern cake

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's the deal, I have an order for a red Coleman lantern cake. I'm planning on sculpting the bottom out of cake and possibly making the glass out of isomalts, or candy, but have no idea what to use for the cover of the lantern! I don't want to use cake because I feel that might be too heavy for the isomalts. I don't think chocolate is a good idea because it's going to be outside, and God only knows what the weather will be like. I was thinking rice crispy treats, but think it might be too bumpy. Any thoughts or ideas on what I can use? Can I ice the rice crispy with ganache like I would the cake? Or is there something better I can use for the top? Help!

You can cover the rice crispies with thin layers of melted chocolate until it is smooth and then apply red fondant. A presumption there as every coleman lamp I have had has had a red top.

You could even just make the top out of pastillage and sit it on top, depending on what model you are making.
