Today's deer is for the Seattle Edible Book Festival which is happening TODAY! (more info about that below.)
It's based on the book Fire Bringer (warning: audio!) which is very much like the Watership Down for deer.
Anyway, here are three pics of the cake for your viewing pleasure!
Do you need a list of ingredients? Fine. The deer is made from rice krispie squares, marzipan, sesame seeds, food dye and four skewers. All plant life, except for the pine trees, is composed of marshmallow fondant. The pine trees are sugar cones coated with royal icing. Oh, there's also a yellow cake with cream cheese icing in there and some candy rocks and a bit of thyme.
Here's the more info bit: If you're in Seattle, WA tomorrow (3/4/09) from 1-4p, please drop by the Good Shepherd Center!
Admission is $10 (free with edible book entry) with proceeds going to the Seattle Center for Book Arts!
Hope to see you there!
