  • Scissors

How-To

Step 1
Use a toothpick to poke four holes into the bottom of the Rice Krispie body, wiggling the toothpick to make wider holes. Carefully put a Pocky stick into each hole – these will be the legs. They’re very long for now, but you’ll push the excess into the cake later.

Step 2
Cut a marshmallow in half lengthwise, and use a toothpick to put a dot of food coloring as an eye. Cut down the remaining half marshmallow into two smaller ears.

Step 4
Gently tear away a layer of cotton candy large enough to cover the Rice Krispie body. You can add and layer additional pieces for more coverage. Be careful though – the more you handle the cotton candy, the less fluffy it becomes. Add a small puff of cotton candy for the tail

Step 5
Place the ears on the marshmallow head (use a drop of water to attach, if necessary), and add another bit of cotton candy on top of the head. Then gently put the lamb on top of your cake and push down into the cake to hide the long while also keeping the topper secure.
