Halloween is almost here and I have spent the entire week frantically working on my costumes. Yes...there are multiple. So, in the spirit of the best holiday ever, I decided to dress my cake up as well. This year, my Rice Krispy Treat Cake is going as a Flamingo!
If you follow any sort of food account on Instagram, I am sure you have seen this chocolate brush stroke technique making the rounds. It's SO hot right now. And for good reason. Adding a little brush stroke chocolate makes anything look super fancy! But I am here to tell you, it is actually quite easy to do.
All you have to do is drop a dollop of melted chocolate on some parchment and use a brush (an offset spatula will work as well) to make the dollop into a line. Let it harden and then attach it to whatever baked item you made. That's it! I even made my roommate do it for some videos. So if she can do it, anyone can do it.
But the real star of this cake is the Rice Krispy Treat base. Not only is it pretty and pink, but it also makes this cake an entirely NO BAKE CAKE. That's right, no oven required to make this beauty! And with the temperatures we have been experiencing the last week (it has been over 100 degrees in LATE OCTOBER) a no bake cake is the perfect solution. And it also makes all your gluten free friends happy!
Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween! Be safe out there and eat LOTS AND LOTS of candy!

Would this work using regular cake rounds (instead of rice crispies) as well?
Yes of course!
Hello, what is the quantity of cream cheese for the icing ? This is not specified in the ingredients. Thanks you !
Hi Emilie! Sorry that is my mistake! There is no cream cheese in this icing. Let me know if you have any further questions!
