Make Up Case Krispy Cake

A perfectly pink cake, but it's not cake. It's the ever yummy Rice Krispy Treats covered with fondant. The birthday girl just doesn't like cake . . . even my cake. I made her a castle last year (check it out). I can't believe that its been a year since I made the Starry Castle, wow.

I can not claim this design as my own, the birthday girls Mum was looking through some of my cake books and just loved Debbie Brown's make up case from 50 Easy Party Cakes, so we made the case by I updated the look of the cosmetics, using lots of black colour paste and luster dust, and glitter. Just like my real ones in my case. Well maybe the colours are not quite so bold. And I am more of a green girl, but we can talk about that another day.

Debbie's board is a flat colour whilst mine is hand embossed with various sized flowers on pink fondant.

I have included the Rice Krispy recipe for you, and it can be formed into just about any shape, very fun.

I did a search for 'rice krispy treats wedding cake' and this popped up. SO cute. Love all your cakes. I am doing a wedding cake next weekend and the bottom tier is rice krispy treats. Any advice? I am a little nervous. Do you have to pack it in the pans really tight to make it dense...and then just frost and cover with fondant? Really, if you have a minute any helpful hints would be much appreciated!! It's my first attempt at a 'rice krispy' cake. Thanks!

Thanks for all the lovely comments ladies, Crispy Cakes are great to make.

Heidivee - do exactly what you mentioned, pack tight, set well, frost, fondant. If you are doing a tiered cake, make sure you still put the dowels in as usual. Better to be safe than sorry. Good Luck
