Ghostbusters Cake

by Lisa Palladino
(New York, United States)

I used lots of cake. 4 layers for the bottom layer and 4 layers for the top. My son is allergic to wheat so I used gluten-free cake mix, by Betty Crocker, is bery good by the way. I have to be creative with incorporate his cake within the rest and this worked out well.

I put the cake on a wood board, and my husband drilled 6 long screws into the bottom so I could stabilize the rice cereal treat buildings.

I made slimer, marshmallow man, and the buildings out of rice crispie treats and covered them with fondant. I also used a long sucker stick to put slimer in the top of the cake. I found that Duff's fondant is also easy to use, its soft and rolls very nice.

Then I used cookie cutters for the ghosts. I attached to the buildings with royal icing. It dries super hard.

I used letter cookie cutters for the words. Also to make the fondant shine I sprayed olive oil cooking spray and brushed it on the fondant with a paint brush. It really finished the cake off.

My son turned 5 and was so excited for this cake.
