It's my son's birthday tomorrow, and he requested a Gravedigger birthday cake. For those of you that have know me, know that I go all out for birthday cakes, if you didn't know, like the Birthday Cake tab above to see my past cakes. :) This one I'm quite proud of, it turned out awesome!
What you need:
2 batches of rice crispy treats (using Erewhon GF Brown Rice Cereal, 8 cups of cereal to one 10oz bag of marshmallows and 2 tablespoons of margarine)
2 batches of chocolate marshmallow fondant (I used 1/2-3/4 cup of cocoa, mixed right in with the powdered sugar, to make it chocolate)
1 cake, cooked in 2 loaf pans (I used King Arthur's GF Chocolate Cake, because I had a box in the pantry)
1 batch of buttercream frosting
Various food colorings, I used Wilton Icing Colors
Paintbrushes (one's that haven't been used before, or used for food projects)
Cover the rice crispy treats with rolled fondant. Rub with extra cocoa to make it look 'dirty'
