Crispy Cranium Crisped Rice Cereal Cake
Nothing says, ?Happy Halloween!? better than a skull centerpiece! Form this skeletal head by molding crisped rice cereal treats in our Guitar Pan. Candy Melts® create the ghostly pallor and facial features.
Prepare cereal treats mixture and press into lightly greased pan (do not press into guitar neck area). Let cool; unmold.
Tape pattern to cake board and cover with waxed paper. Outline and fill in facial features using 3 oz. melted, tinted candy in cut parchment bag; chill until firm.
Place skull on cooling grid set over cookie sheet. Melt remaining white candy and pour over to cover top and sides; tap to settle. Chill until firm.
Repeat and position facial features, smooth side up. Pipe black outline mouth using melted candy in cut parchment bag; use toothpick to pull black candy into lines for teeth. Chill until firm.
You can't go wrong with any of these delicious coatings. Each will give cupcakes, mini cakes and other baked goods a beautiful finish — choose the look you want for your event.
