I am doing a golf ball on top of a 10" round tomorrow morning. I made the golf ball with rice krispie treats and am going to cover it with white fondant. Do I need to cover the rice krispie ball with BC before I cover it with fondant? or will it be sticky enough for the fondant to stick?

Any other tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I have done a few things with RKT and I have always put a layer of BC on. I just think it helps get a smoother finish to the fondant.

I just made a guitar cake last weekend and made the entire neck of the guitar in rice krispies treats. I iced it first and then covered in fondant. Worked great.

I use almond bark or the appropriate colored candy melts on my rkt's before covering with fondant.

I make my shape, then coat with the melted stuff, fill in all the nooks and crannies. Let it dry, then do it again. then I use a hot dry spatula and smooth whatever rough spots are left. before covering with fondant.

RKT's will not last long with a buttercream covering, it starts to break down and will not hold the shape as long. Depending on when you are delivering it, this may not be a problem at all. The candy melts keep the rkt's fresh, keep them in place, and give you a nice firm surface to put your fondant on.

I put the rice krispies in the blender and grind them up before I make the RKT, then just stick the fondant directly on, and it's smooth enough and sticky enough.

yeah but, do you ever find with crushing/blending them up that a)you have to use more, and B)they become heavier because they are more dense/compact?
atleast that seems to me what would be the first things to happen.

It does come out heavy.
