The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Cake

Featured
Picture of The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Cake
Who doesn't like the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch1 and what better form than in a cake?  But before we get baking let us say together a reading from the Book of Armaments:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Right then, let's make a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Cake!

1 You know, from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Step 1: Supplies and Ingredients

You're going to need the following supplies:

Half Sheet Pan  (I used this one )

Ball Pan (I used this one )

Cross Candy Mold (I used this one )

Rolling Pin to rolll the fondant with

Enough cake batter for the above pans.  I used mixes and used four boxes of Duncan Hines Yellow Cake mix made according to the box except for using only tablespoon of oil per mix (it makes the cakes better suited for stacking).

Three batches of Rice Krispies Treats  (recipe here )

Two batches of Marshmallow Fondant (recipe here )  or an equal amount of store bought fondant.

Four Batches of your favorite buttercream recipe.  (I used this one )

Small amount of Royal Icing

Candy Melts & Yellow & Red Candy Coloring

Brown Paste Food Coloring

Red Paste Food Coloring

Gold Luster Dust

Sugar Pearls

Vodka

Small Paint Brush (that's never been used for painting)

Cake Board

You should be able to get everything you need between your local grocery and craft store.

This is our first ible? Awesome! Great job. Also, as one who watched "Monty Python"s Flying Circus" on PBS a few centuries back, I'm glad to know there are still people who appreciate genius grade insanity.
rickwaller (author)  axiesdad3 years ago
Thanks! it is my first one. I figured an undertaking as important as the Holy Hand Grenade should be duly documented. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the office recognized it right away when it was wheeled in for the unsuspecting recipient.

Now do the same thing again, but as a prank and have it blow up in someone's face. Just like it should.
LOL. I can see it now...

Blessed is thy cake. With it may you serve slices in tiny bits.
AHHH! You said the word! I will say Ni to you, unless you bring me a shrubery!
Is it "and"? No? Well in that case I shall say....... IT IT IT IT IT IT IT IT!

Looks great. Seems like you spent a lot of money on a cake, though.

Thanks! I already had all of the equipment, so the groceries didn't cost too much.
