You make the RKT like you normally do and then just mold them and let them dry for a couple of days. I learned the hard way. If its to soft, it will def split. I did an elmo and his head literally looked like it exploded due to the "melting" RKT that was way to soft.

Thank you for this post. I used RKT for the head and wheels of WALL-E for my grandson's birthday cake. The head split..........I wish I had seen this post prior to making the cake. Next time I will definitely let everything dry for more hand a day before I try to assemble it.

Thank you!
