My son asked me to make him a Rice Krispie birthday cake for his party on Saturday, and for once, Martha Stewart had a recipe that was reasonable and did not take 10 hours and 4 assistants!

Here is a link to the recipe, which can be made so that it is free of dairy if you use DF margarine and DF chocolate chips. (It is of course free of eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame seeds, etc.)

http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/no- ... thday-cake

Basically, you have to print out the 3 recipes
- for the cake (pretty much Rice Krispie squares on a grand scale)
- for the chocolate-marshmallow icing (very easy)
- for the assembly (quite easy)

Instead of "cereal" as decoration (see her pics - where the heck did she find cereal that looked like that??), I used icing, piped as big dots with my trusty icing bag. I did it red and blue - and of course forgot to take a picture. AUGH!!

But it was delicious and pretty easy to make, and the chocolate-marshmallow icing could also be used separately to make candies or even to make the top icing (if you doubled the recipe). It hardens pretty quickly so don't take too long to pour it onto the cake.

If I make it again, I will try to remember to take a picture.

Oh - it's also very easy to cut and serve. You just use a huge knife, and then you can lift the pieces with your (clean) hards. I hate cutting cakes so this was an extra bonus for me. :)

What brand of DF, EF marshmallows do you use? Do you happen to know if they are wheat free as well?

I use various kinds of marshmallows - No Name, Kraft, etc. Have never had a problem. I have never seen any kind of warning for dairy, egg or wheat on marshmallows.
