ok. i have seen lots of threads sayin they use rice krispie treats for models. i know i am probably being dense but how do you get a box of rice krispies into a baby or puppy or anything. is there some special glue or mix that makes them stick together and dry hard enough to sculpt
Rice Krispie treats are made by mixing the Rice Krispies with melted marshmallows, if you can get them already made like we can here in the USA, it saves a lot of bother. To get a really good modeling RKT add melted chocolate & smoosh it all together, when this dries it is much firmer than just the RKT. This was a wonderful tip given on CC & I just can not remember who told us about it. Hope this helps you.
I noticed you are in the UK. I do believe Rice Krispies in the US is called something else in the UK. I don't remember what it is, but it's cereal. You melt butter in a saucepan and add marshmallows. Once they are fully melted, add your rice krispies. I find it a lot easier to crush the cereal first, it helps avoid lumps in your figure. Let the mixture cool, then shape as needed. Cover in buttercream and/or fondant. I actually stick mine in the freezer once it is sculpted. That way it is really hard! Hope it helps!
I think this is the post that superstar was referring to:
