This cake was made for a Baby Naming. The highlight of this cake is clearly the edible 3-D baby blocks that sit on top of the cake. To create the baby blocks, I formed rice krispy treats into small squares. To ensure smooth sides, I used a serrated knife to trim each side of the block to remove all the “krispy bumps.” Next, I iced each block with a thin layer of buttercream. This helps not only to fill in the gaps the occur naturally in a rice krispy treat and further smooth the sides, but also helps the fondant to stick to the treat. After each block was trimmed and iced, I then covered them with white fondant. The letters and decorations (the sides of the blocks have bottles, ducks, carriages, etc that aren’t visible from the pictures) were cut from fondant and then applied with a small amount of water. (Because fondant is a sugar prodcut, a little water makes the surface tacky and it sticks to itself quite nicely). To finish off the blocks, I piped the boarders with royal icing. After the royal dried on each block, I was able to carefully transfer the blocks onto the sheet cake.
