Call the fire brigade!

This fire engine is made with a rice krispy treat (essentially, rice bubbles and melted marshmallows mixed into a sticky mess and 'set' in a tin). When cooled and set,  I carved the block of rice krispy treat into the basic shape of a fire engine, and then covered it in fondant. I followed the instructions for Debbie Brown's fire engine cake and was very pleased with the result, even though I changed things a little to suit the slightly smaller scale of the cake topper.
