Step 1: Ingredients
- grey and black food dye
- small wooden dowel
- plate or cake board
- clean paint brush
- favorite cake and icing recipes
- rice krispies
Step 2: Creating The Basic Body
Stack your cakes with icing between the layers and stick your dowel through it. You don't always need a dowel for cakes like this but I would rather be safe than sorry. Nothing would be more crushing than the downfall of your creation being a tiny piece of wood.
I used the round tops from the cake to give the sloth a pot belly and pretty large thighs. I secured them with a touch of icing. Use your remaining scraps to stick on in the shape of arms and legs. Give everything a thin coat of icing and stick in the fridge for about a half hour to firm up.
Step 3: Nails And Fur
Sloths also have very long finger and toe nails
I uses white fondant roller into long logs for nails, stick 3 on each limb.
