I am making a Rice Krispy Treat cake for the first time. How do I go about covering it? I did try covering it once already but it was very bumpy - you could tell that there were rkt underneath. Does anyone have any ideas, please, on how to cover it so that it will look smooth?
Some people crush the RK before molding into what ever they make it into. If your making a cake try covering it in buttercream then cover it with fondant to see if that helps the bumps.
just about everywhere I've read says that you give it a coat of buttercream first. you can't really smooth out rice crispies. lol. HTH
I actually coated mine in chocolate (candy melts) and then rolled the fondant/gumpaste (50/50) on the thicker side. I like the idea of crushing the rice krispies first, I haven't tried that though. I do think I crushed them pretty good as I molded the figures. Mine were pretty dense and compact.
I usually give my rkt a coat of buttercream and smooth it good before putting fondant on.
