TIA

Different options for what you can use between your RKT and fondant:

Buttercream
Candy Melts
Chocolate
Shortening
Nothing at all
Simple Syrup

There may be more but this is what I can remember for now.

Here's a great thread that might help:

Couple of other things to keep in mind:

-you make want to crush your rk's before making rkt so they are a little less bumpy when you mold (you can put them thru your food processor real quickly, crush by hand or a rolling pin etc).
-easier to mold when still slightly warm
-if your rkt is still on the bumpy side either roll your fondant thicker to hide some of the bumps or cover it twice
-have fun!

GREAT, thanks for the thread! icon_smile.gif I think I'll cover it in chocolate, may taste better and less sweet than bc. Thanks again! icon_biggrin.gif
