Wedding Cake of the Week:
DIY Rice Krispies Cake

I spotted this Rice Krispies wedding cake on Alix Klingerberg's photography blog and loved the idea (and the heart-shaped topper!)—it's a great alternative to traditional wedding cake or cupcakes. This confection was made by the bride's sister and a friend; the Rice Krispies treats were molded in round cake pans, accented with white fondant ribbons, and topped with a DIY felt heart. Learn how to make the heart-shaped cake topper or purchase similar ones here. Also, see more of this couple's DIY wedding at the Byron Colby Barn, located near Chicago, on Alix Klingenberg's blog. —Heather Lee
