Remy's Cheese Cake

Remy Cake

Remy is a rat with a nose for sniffing out delicious treats, and this cheese-shaped cake is no exception. Remy even makes a surprise appearance, poking his head out from inside the cake!

You'll need:

  • 2 8-inch round cakes, baked from your favorite recipe
  • White frosting, store bought
  • Gel food coloring: buttercup, yellow, blue, red
  • Orange candy melts, found in baking and craft stores
  • 2 marshmallows
  • White taffy candy (we used Tootsie Rolls)
  • Brown taffy candy (we used Tootsie Rolls)
  • Pink taffy candy (we used Starburst)
  • White nonpareil sprinkles
  • Chocolate wafer cookies

1. To start, set aside a quarter cup of white frosting. Tint this frosting gray by first creating a pale lavender color using a tiny drop of blue and red, then adding yellow to create a cement gray color.

2. Tint the remaining frosting yellow using the buttercup food coloring.

3. Place a cooled 8-inch cake on a cake plate and top with yellow buttercup frosting. Stack the second cake on top of that. Cut a slice from the cake and set it aside. Now frost the entire cake using the buttercup frosting.

Step 3

4. Press orange candy melts, flat side facing up, scattered over the top and sides of the cake, like the holes in a block of Swiss cheese. Set the frosted cake aside.

Step 4

5. Trim the edges of a marshmallow, creating a cone shape.

Step 5

6. Frost the edges of the marshmallow cone using the gray icing you created earlier -- this will be Remy's snout. Place a dollop of gray frosting on the wafer cookie and press the frosted snout on top of that.

Step 6

7. Divide the pink taffy into 3 pieces. Roll one piece into a ball for Remy's snout. Form the other two pieces into circles and roll the ends to create Remy's ears.

Step 7

8. Form Remy's eyes using small pieces of the white taffy. Top with smaller pieces of the brown taffy for pupils. Give Remy's eyes a sparkle with white nonpareils.

Step 8

9. Place the decorated cookie on top of the cake and make Remy a chef's hat by cutting a marshmallow in half.

Step 8

10. To make a "Happy Birthday" sign, tape a circle of colored cardstock onto a toothpick and insert in the cake.
