I read somewhere on here that if you want the ricekrispies to have a smoother look crush them up in a food processer first, then make them as usual. Haven't tired it yet, but am going to soon. HTH

I used what was on the box, excluding the butter. I let my mold sit for a couple days to let it become firm.

mommak that is so clever....let sit a few days. I've made them but in the process of assembling the cake the RKT always seem to open up and fall apart. It drives me crazy sometimes. Thanks for that tip though!

I found this forum helpful when making my RKT Dumbo. I used the original recipe and omitted the butter. I found it to still be rather bumpy even after crushing (somewhat) the RK, so I applied a thin layer of RI and smoothed it out prior to covering in fondant. HTH

i like the tip on crushing the Rice Krispies...I have a ladybird to make soon and will try that technique.

why do some people omit the butter?

I believe it makes for a stiffer RKT.

if you omit the butter dont the marshmellows stick terribly to the pot they are in?

I usually use the Rice Crispie treats that are premade they are much stiffer and less marshmallowie and great to scult. I recently made a 3D care bear and it came out great using them. Everyone also commented that they were the "best" rice crispie treats they ever had and I just laughed to myself! I get them at Sams Club they are bigger in size and more reasonable! Hope this helps good luck!

I've never had any problems with it sticking. I guess you could always lightly spray your pan.

Your very welcome. But I did learn the hard way. If you look in my pics my first disaster was with RKT, it was my elmo. Ohh it was not good!! icon_cry.gif

so, in order to do a RKT model you have to have a pan shaped like you want? Or can you model with it. I am confused as to how you do it. I am trying to make an elephant head with RKT and thought I could just model with it, its all falling apart and not sticking together. Do I refidgerate it and let it set first? *confused* thanks

You can model with it. Allow it to cool completely first before trying to model with it, it will be less likely to fall apart then.

I used them for the first time this week to make my fish cake, it worked great!! I used the recipe on the box. I just let them cool alittle, put a small amount of butter on my hands and started scuplting.
