Spoiling my son
My son told me he wanted a volcano cake with stick men on fire and this is what I came up with.
I had to use paper clips to give the stick men a sort of bone structure then molded fondant around it. The fire I used regular icing (orange) then topped the orange with yellow. Then took a toothpick to blend.
The lava is made up of white chocolate and food coloring.
I had also created a little gadget that would sit on top of the cylinder that the lava would flow out of to hold some dry ice. I wanted to also have the illusion of steam coming from the top. Unfortunately, it melted and the nearest place to get dry ice was over 50 miles away.
Also, it's a good idea to check your chocolate fountain to make sure it works before you get started.
