I've only made a couple cakes, so I'm pretty new to all this. Here's my question... When applying fondant over RKT, how do you get it to adhere? Do you apply it directly to the RKT or do you have to put a layer of buttercream like you do with cake? (I'm sure this is a ridiculous question to most of you, but I searched through the forums to avoid asking an embarrassing question, but couldn't find the answer!!) icon_redface.gif

TIA for your help!!

Some people use buttercream. I personally use ready made RKT and to me, it is sticky enough for the fondant to adhere.

I usually put two coats of fondant to help things smoothen out. Some people use BC under for a smoother finish.

What the heck is RKT?? I am sure it's an easy answer.

Maybe I just too tired to make the connection!

I used buttercream under my fish (RKT) to get the fondant to adhere, but I was new to using fondant and wanted a smooth finish, buttercream worked great...you can check out my profile pic. Good luck, RKT is fun!
