A Groom's Cake
So we've got a lotta chocolate going on. And I'm so in love with s'mores that I'll probably eat fifty and wind up with marshmallow all over my face. Anyway, now that we don't have a wedding cake on the menu, I have to come up with some sort of acceptable alternative to cut and feed each other. We'll get the iconic photos as well as placate the FMIL. Or maybe I should just call her FML? Anywhoodle. I was totally on board with something like this:
A super cute assortment of pies, all the ones I love. Pecan and apple and peach and buttermilk and you-name-it! We have $125 to go crazy with pie. Three dessert choices seems like more than enough. Plus, we can still put a very fancy-looking pie on a cake-plate and toss on our topper. That is, until I laid eyes on this baby:
A rice krispy cake?!? For the realz? That's kind of the best thing ever. And it seems pretty darn simple to make, I'd just have to wrangle up containers of the right size to make the proportions look right. I'd want a circular one, of course, and most likely 2 tiers. Plus, making it is fifty trillion times easier than baking and decorating a cake. Let's make a comparison list, shall we?
- long time favorite
- lots of flavor options
- simple and cheap to buy, pretty full proof execution
- big, fun impact
- still pretty unique
- Still looks like a cake
- easy and cheap to make, but can still have something go wrong
- incredibly unique, I've never seen this in person before
I don't know, I'm so torn! What should I do, hive? Help me pick!
a) pie bar
b) Rice Krispy Cake
