Made for a wedding party where the groom was Mexican and the bride Romanian.
Made after a cake seen on Cake central. The cactus, the desert, the Mexican with his sombrero and the chilly were all very Mexican:) but we had to incorporate the Romanian side as well.
So Gloria said: add a bottle of "tuica", i.e. Romania's drink.
So there you have our drunken with "tuica" Mexican:)
The bottle that made us and Mexico "ONE" :))
And the whole cake again. It was very large and this is the closest I could get with the camera and still have all the elements in the picture.
The board was 1.20m x 0.70m. huuuuge...
And my pride, the cactus:)
It was 70 cm tall!!!!! and it was made out of RKT(rice krispy treats), the same thing you see on Cake boss.
It was my first time working with RKT and I loooove it!!! Sooo light, so easy to work with. I will continue to use it.
The needles were spaghetti:)) Perfect!
And this is how it came into being:
Solid support structure, screwed to the board. I am telling you again. watching TV can be a learning experience. I have seen all this on cake boss, and here I am today doing it in my home, with the priceless help of my husband, of course.
you keep adding the RKT on the structure
finished cactus, ready to be covered in fondant and decorated.
