A coworker of mine got married a couple months ago in Serbia.  His wife finally got her visa to join him here in Canada, so we threw them a little congratulatory barbeque.  I made them this wedding cake of rice krispie treats.  I basically used three round baking dishes (didn't have cake pans) and a mug for the moulds.  It took 3 batches of Rice Krispies made according to the standard recipe.

The ribbons are fruit-roll-up type things and so are the roses.  They don't have Rice Krispies in Serbia, though - so we had to explain that the cake was actually edible.  Not sure if it was ever eaten - the happy couple took it home with them. But, they really liked it - so yippi!

Wow - that's so fantastically creative!  It'd make a great cake for other occasions too but the layered wedding cake looks great.  And I have to say the ribbons and flowers are truly inspired!  Great work!

That's very clever, and a great way to do something nice for cheap.  With typical marshmallow, Rice Krispie, and Fruit-by-the-Foot sale prices, I bet you could do this for $10 exactly.  I'm totally going to borrow this idea for my friend's bridal shower.  Thanks!

Yeah, I used the no-name store brand of "crispie rice" cereal, so it was super-cheap!  You could also use the regular fruit roll ups and use a cookie-cutter to cut circles or stars or something.  I couldn't find fruit roll ups at my grocer - so that's how I ended up with fruit-by-the-foot ribbons.

What a fantastic idea.

I've always wanted to make a tiered cake but figure it would end in disaster, so maybe I'll have to try this.

Lol, I was just searching this forum to see if anyone else had had my idea. I made a rice krispie cake for my son's birthday with fruit by the foot decorations, and it turned out spectacular! (he doesn't like cake, the horrors!)

the cell phone photography leaves a lot to be desired.

I love your roses! How did you do that? I suppose I could google ribbon roses and come up with some idea.

That's awesome! Great minds think alike!
I don't really know how to describe how I did the roses.  I just cut petal shapes out of the f-b-t-f and smoshed them together using a little water on my finger to "glue" them.  This tutorial is pretty close to what I did (except I just cut out the guitar pic shape with some clean kitchen scissors, instead of forming them froma ball of clay) http://www.jaedworks.com/clayspot/techniques/roses.html

Your gift bow is an awesome cake topper!

What a neat idea!  How did you prevent the layers from sticking to the pans?  Lined with wax paper?  Springform pans?
