I made my 2nd sculpted/3D cake and I'm so happy with it! This was made for my nephew who's turning 12 and loves to fish and said that he "was put on this earth to fish." He also just joined a junior bass fishing club. The fish itself is rice krispie treats and then covered in the MMF and then detailed and hand painted. The cake is strawberry, his favorite, with buttercream. I made the cattails from gum paste. I also made some lures, sinkers and bobbers and put them on cupcakes as decoration.
This is an instructable on how I made it. :)
Step 1: Mold the Rice Krispie Treats
First I made a double batch of Rice Krispie treats. I just used the recipe on the box, but you can find it here: http://ricekrispies.com/#/recipes/the-original-treats
With a light coating of Crisco on my hands I molded the treats around dowels in the shapes of the 2 parts of the fish.
