Do I use the recipe on the box or do I increase, substitute or change any of the ingredients? My recipe came out so hard and lumpy and I couldnt for the life of me smooth it out. When I tried to carve it, it broke off in chunks. There is definately an art to carving rkt.

You can crush up the rice krispies before putting them in the marshmallows. Then they aren't so bumpy/lumpy.

I guess it depends on what shape you are making.
I did a monkey w/bananas cake. At first I just shaped them but they looked bumpy (put them under) then I really pushed when shaped them to get less of bump - that worked better.
How about shaping then cutting off bit by bit?
