I found this question asked previously in the forums, but there were no responses. I need to make a smallish sculpted part of my cake out of RKT and covered with fondant. I'm using ready-made RKT and they're working well for me.
For those who've done this before, how far in advance have you made RKT-formed parts of your cake? The ingredients are mostly sugar, sugar, sugar and fat, so I'm not too worried about it, but I would appreciate confirmation that I can make this part several days in advance.
Thanks for your help!
I usually make my items within the week before the cake is due, however I have made rice krispy cakes and parts where left over up to 2 weeks later and they still tasted good.
I make my own rice krispies, so I do not know if there is a difference with the purchased ones, but I would imagine with the extra preservatives in them you wouldn't have a problem with that long either.
Thanks, Leily, I appreciate the info. Making the sculpted part in advance is going to make my cake so much easier.
