Does anyone know if you can cover graham crackers in fondant or gumpaste? I'm collaborating with my sis-in-law on a Snoopy cake for my niece. I'm trying to figure out how to make a small Snoopy dog house, and I was thinking that I could make one out of graham crackers. TIA for your help!

I've never done that, but one thing to keep in mind is that when Graham crackers sit out they get soft. So if you do it, build the house last minute so it doesn't collapse.

I think if you use graham crackers they will get soft because you would have to moisten them to adhere the fondant. The slightest amount of moisture on the cracker will make it too soft to hold the shape.
Could you use rice krispie treats to mold the dog house or maybe use a mixture of fondant and gumpaste and make panels, maybe the same as you would the graham crackers, then assemble them like a doghouse.

Just some ideas...hope it helps.

Thanks-you are both right-I never stopped to think about that! I guess that isn't a very good idea. I will have to think about this some more-anyone else have any ideas?
