First thing's first, get your ingredients together.  You will need the following to make this cake --

Ingredients:

1 x 14 oz. box cake mix
3 large eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
2 cans frosting
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
4 tablespoons shortening, divided
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 lb. white fondant
1/2 cup black fondant
Black food coloring
Red food coloring
Green food coloring
Vodka (optional)

Tools:

2 x 9-inch round pans
Baker's joy spray
Kitchen knife
Round cake board or plate
Food-safe decorating brush
Rolling pin (preferably fondant rolling pin)
Small saucepan
4 x 6-inch lollipop sticks (or other, food-safe sticks)

We're going to start by making the rice krispie base that will make Samara.

Place 2 tablespoons of shortening into a small saucepan over low heat and heat until melted.  Stir in marshmallows and cook, stirring constantly, until they have melted into one big white mass.  Remove pan from heat and stir in rice krispies.  Make sure you stir them in really well, so you don't have any big patches of plain marshmallow left.

Let your rice krispie mixture sit until it is room temperature, 1-2 hours.

Step 3:

Once your rice krispie mixture is nice and cooled, you can start to shape it!  If at any time it becomes too sticky, just moisten your fingers slightly.  

First, roll a small ball with the diameter of approximately 1 inch.  Then, roll a ball with a diameter of 1 3/4 inches.  These will form the arm joint and the head.

Now, you need to make your body.  Samara is going to be bending forward, so your shape will kind of look like a really soft wave.  It should measure anywhere from 3 1/2 to 4 inches in height, and about 2 1/2 inches wide.
