I recall some of you mentioning that you cover your cake drums in RI. I have been using pretty paper to wrap them or covering them in fondant.

I have searched the forum and can't find anything on the topic.

I'd like to try RI but I have a few questions...

1. do you outline and then flood or do you let the RI drip over the sides of the drum?

2. how long to you have to wait for it to dry enough to put a cake on it?

3. if it is completely dry can I put a BC covered cake on it or will the RI melt?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I like the RI thicker when on a cake board so I use tip 5 to outline the board. Flood with thinned RI and let it dry until completely hardened, at least a day, maybe more depending on how thin your icing was. Once dry you can put BC on it without a problem.
