Peanut Butter Paradise

This weekend we were tasked to make a HUGE package of Reese's Peanut Butter Butter Cups.  And when I say huge, I mean almost 2 feet long!  Since it was a Reese's Cup cake, it only makes sense that it was chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, right?

Nothing terribly fancy going on here - the sides of the package were made from rice crispy treats and the whole thing was covered in fondant.  The one cool thing we did on this cake was to use our Cricut Cake to cut out the logo.  Chad took the logo and somehow got into this new software we bought (called Sure Cuts a Lot) and used it to cut the logo out of modeling chocolate.  It was very cool, and if we ever do another one, we can use the same file to make it as large or small as we need!

Once it was finished I had some extra space left on my cake board so I covered most of the exposed areas of the board with ganache and then topped it with quartered peanut butter cups and Reese's Pieces!  Peanut Butter Paradise!!!
