Has anyone tried covering a molded rice krispie treat with fondant? Any tips/tricks to make it look smooth? Thanks!

I just made baby blocks out of rice krispies and the fondant covered over them smooth...i just made the fondant a little thicker than i normally would

I coverd my RKT leg for my Leg Lamp cake in fondant ~ I just did a thin layer of BC and then covered with fondant. No problems!

When I used fondant over RKT for items in my "Sewing Basket" cake, I had to use two layers of fondant.

I covered my RKT in royal icing first to help cover all the little nooks and crannies. You could try melted chocolate too.

I couldn't get to first base. I tried to make a ball-shaped RKT and ended up with bits of RKT attached to sticky hands and clumps of sticky stuff in a bowl. Ended up covering a polystyrene ball with fondant. What did I do wrong?

It helps a lot not to use butter in the RKT when you're molding them. If it's still too sticky it sounds like you have too much marshmallow and not enough rice krispies.

Thanks Kim; I'll try that next time.
