I made the marzipan food the day before. The little popsicle stick is a noodle from a box mac & cheese.
Everyone was asking me at the party how I made the ants. I used dark brown gel and rolled a little nugget between my fingers and then pinched it with tweezers to form a head. Black icing inside of a zip-lock and a pin hole poked into the corned to pipe the little legs directly on the cake.
After the cake was cooled filled & stacked I added a crumb layer of whipped vanilla frosting over the entire thing.
The fondant is pure white ready made from wilton. I rolled it out using the cake pan I used as a guide plus 3 inches for the skirting of the checkered table cloth
I placed all the food on the table securing it with a dab of icing. I made the popsicle look like it's melting with some sparkly gel blue icing.
I loved making this cake and the kids loved it even more. It was moist, lemony & delish. The first thing to get eaten was all the little ants. My favorite was the little hot dog. Can't wait till the next event.
