Coolest Cheshire Cat Cake
My friend’s son loves the new Alice in Wonderland movie, not to mention chocolate and peanut butter! Who doesn’t?! The Cheshire cat, in particular, is very cool and I thought it would translate well to the cake medium.
The homemade Cheshire Cat cake was chocolate with a filling of chocolate and peanut butter mousses and sliced bananas. I don’t really follow recipes; I just do what feels right to me. For the peanut butter mousse I melted peanut butter and powdered sugar with a little milk and cooled it down so I could fold it in with whipped cream. It tasted great, but I see now that there should have been some gelatin involved in order for the mousse layers to hold up, especially on a hot day like the one I had.
Rice Krispie treats are always the “Go to” medium when it comes to 3 dimensional cakes. I used the marshmallow treats to form the cat’s ears. Yes, I realize the colors are not as they are in the movie, but I think that is part of the creative originality of each cake I do… I work with what I have. I got a lot of OOOh’s and AHHH’s and my friend’s son was happy.
