Cute Donut Cake: The secret inside the GIANT DONUT

The secret is I made it using rice crispy treats!  So easy to do.  First you need to make your RICE CRISPY TREATS....   Using a large glass bowl melt 1/4 cups of butter in the microwave.   Mix in 3 cups of marshmallow into the melted butter.   Microwave for 1 minute.    Stir with a silicone spatula.  If mixture is lumpy, microwave for another 30 seconds.   Stir until smooth.   Stir in 6 to 7 cups rice crispy cereal.   Stir well make sure all the rice cereal is coated with melted marshmallows. Set aside Now you are ready to shape your doughnut.  You will need:  6" round cake pan, and a 2" wide round cookie cutter.   Grease the cake pan with shortening or butter.   Pack in rice crispy treats into the grease cake pan.   Unmold the crispy treat.   Using the round cookie cutter cut out a circle in the centre of the crispy treat.   Smooth out the edge and the centre of the donut with your finger.  This step will make it look    more like a donut.

Trevi Fountain Cake

Back in August 2018 my cousin Elaine and her husband Wes got married.. It was an amazing wedding! I am honoured to be one of the two matron of honours for my cousin Elaine. NAILED IT!!! After months of designing, planning remaking the figurines and approximately 60 hours of sculpting, baking, and decorating time. The cake is here at @jobchoa and @elainevill 's wedding reception. My version of Trevi Fountain cake.   Why the Trevi Fountain you ask?  Its because it is where they got engaged! The cake is not very big.  It was a 2 layer 12" cake.  I trimmed the front to create steps.  I also made cupcakes enough for 200 people.
