Being in the middle of packing up and moving house, there isn’t much going on in the way of crafting at the moment. Having said that, it was fun to have a go at turning George’s toy dinosaur, (from Peppa Pig), into a cake topper. To make the rice bubble and marshmallow shape I halved the recipe from here, http://kiwicakesnz.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/marshmallow-rice-krispies-for-cakes.html , and it worked really well. The trick is definitely to keep squeezing and compacting the mix together when shaping. The cooled shape was then thinly crumb coated with buttercream and covered in green fondant and decorated. It was a bit monstrous for a cake topper but once you’re committed to a certain size there’s no going back!
