I need tips for working with RKTs. I am going to try to make SpongeBob's pineapple house. Can I use buttercream? If I use fondant, do i put buttercream underneath so it can stick?
These are the only questions so far but any tips would be appreciated.
Sure you can use buttercream or if you decide to use fondant either put a coat of buttercream on the RKT first or sometimes I coat the sculpture w/shortening then apply the fondant.
I usually coat w/ BC first, then cover in fondant. I also find it makes your finish product less bumpy if you apply quite a bit of pressure when forming your piece(s). It kind of crushes the cereal and flattens it. HTH
I was told you can also use modeling chocolate, and when it hardens your piece won't squish down. Then you just cover with fondant.
Others have suggested that, if you're making RKT from scratch, crush the RKs down before adding to MM, because this will lessen the bumps.
