Do you just make the recipe according to the directions on the cereal box or is there another recipe that is "stiffer" to use for decorating. Thank you! icon_biggrin.gif

there are a number of threads on using RKT so if you do search you'll get some really good info. Honestly because I hate the cleanup, I used pre-made ones. they're a little stiffer than homemade and if you want to soften them up you can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds, but I just needed them a little as is and they worked great.

If you are looking to using them to sculpt or mold something don't use the butter/margarine it calls for in the recipe. It makes the RKT too soft to harden.
Hope it helps

Yes, I'm looking to mold a shape and then cover with MMF. So just leave out the butter and follow the rest of the recipe, correct?

I think you still need to use the butter, just not as much. I saw it on another thread. I'm using for the first time this weekend to make the pineapple house of sponge bob out of RKT. Wish me luck!

I have used RKT many times and I use the org. recipe after I make them I put them in a large baggy and if I want them stiffer I just reheat them in the plastic baggy and they get stiffer for molding I find them easy to work with after they are cooled when using the org. recipe
