Have any of you ever used rice krispie treats in your sculpted cakes? If so, do you just use the "normal" recipe, or is there some special recipe that keeps them more pliable and easier to work with? I'm looking to make a 3D ninja cake. Any advice or tips you can give would be appreciated. Thanks!

I always buy the RKT. I keep several boxes in the pantry. Yesterday I dlivered an Xbox and the controller was made of fondant covered RKT.

I used this recipe today and it worked out pretty well!

At first, it was too marshmellowie and wouldn't hold it's shape. So I just mixed some dry rk's in and it worked out fine. I was able to sculpt with it. The other tip is to use butter on your hands, so that the RKT's won't stick to your hands.

I use the Rice Krispies Treats recipe that's on the kellogg's site. I use it without making any modifications. Rub shortening on your hands or anything you are using to mold with. That will prevent them from sticking to your hands. Also, mold your work while still warm. This will make it easier to work with.

I made one of these, too! I made the controller from pre-made (boxed) RKT and covered it with white fondant. It was my first attempt as sculpting. I know I need to work on the technique, but it turned out not too bad. (The cake was an ordinary chocolate square - what he wanted.) It's in my photo album.

I use ready made ones. I need to find those in super bulk.

timhenk - I've used RKT a lot for sculptures and figures. One suggestion that I found on CC that I love is to crush up your rice krispies before mixing them into the marshmallows and you'll get a smoother texture on your figures.

Thanks for all the advice!!! I love the idea of crushing the rice krispies first. I'll take all your advice and let you know how it goes!
