Rice Krispie Treats

Monday, 22 June 2015 08:24:17 Europe/London

So we have a castle cake to make this week, so the turrets need Rice Krispie Treats for the structure, so i thought i'd share a 'how to' and the recipe because its so easy to make and it saves buying hundereds of little packets of them. 

Ingredients:

45g Butter

300g mini marshmallows (any marshmallows will work we just find the mini ones work better)

180g rice krispie

tbls vegetable oil (for oiling the spoon - DO NOT PUT IN THE MIXTURE)

 

place butter and mini marshmallows in a large bowl and microwave for 1 1/2 - 2mins or until completely melted (use a large bowl than you think as the marshmallows expand when melted)

Measure out your rice kispies and add to the melted marshmallows.

Line a cake tin/baking tray with greaseproof/baking paper.

Dip a metal spoon into the oil and shake off excess. Smooth out in the pan and compress as much as possible. 

Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge to set for at least an hour.

 

This recipe does an 8" square tin at 1" high approx.

(In the pictures i've tripled the recipe with a 12" tin)

Wedding Cake Ideas

Wedding planning can be both exciting and stressful. You want the best but you have a budget. We understand and to make the process a little easier, we’ve put together a list of popular and creative wedding cake ideas.

 

The Traditional Cake

 The Traditional wedding Cake

 

The 3-tier rounded white wedding cake! Fits all weddings especially ones going for a more traditional feel. This particular vanilla cake will feed around 60 people.

The Fancy Traditional Cake

 The Fancy Traditional Wedding Cake

This more elaborate design has more colour and colour schemes are a big consideration when planning your big day. However this has more of a wow factor; with beautifully hand crafted edible roses. Hovering around the £600 mark, this cake will feed in excess of 100 people.

The Vintage Cake

 The Vintage Wedding Cake

A very popular choice as 50’s vintage fashion continues to grow & suits more alternative styles for weddings. This cake is still just as beautifully designed as all the others and is topped off with polka dot strips and a classy handmade, edible rose. For a standard vanilla cake, this will feed around 120+, not bad for around the £500 mark.

The Bespoke Cake(s)

The bespoke cake is where all the fun happens! All cakes are bespoke to a degree, but some are more creative than others. For example we have the Alice in Wonderland extravaganza! Eye catching is an understatement.

 We also have the ‘taste the rainbow’ cake, another eye catching piece which is perfect for the right couple. Hexagon cakes are becoming more and more popular and definitely add a contemporary feel.

Bespoke cakes do tend to lean more on the expensive side, relative to more traditional cakes. Cakes really can define the style, theme, and mood of the day. That is why we offer so many diverse cakes at Cakeology, so you can get the cake perfect for your special day.

 

Browse our range, give us a call or drop us a comment for more information, we’d love to help you on your quest to find the perfect wedding cake :)
