Do you make your rkt and spread out on a sheet pan to set a little and then cut or tear pieces to start molding or how do you make shapes with rkt.....
You spread the RKT's in a pan if you want flat sheets of RKT's. Otherwise, shape right away as they cool very quickly. (Less dangerous than molding/pulling hot sugar, that's for sure.)
Here's a tutorial on making a 3D Elmo RKT cake topper. This should give you a pretty good overview on how it's done:
I start molding mine right from the bowl.
Thanks so much JanH for posting these links. This is really something I want to try.
when i made it, i waited till they cooled...... I am just going to buy them from now on LOL
Why do RKT dries sooo hard?? After I made it, mold it, covered it in fondant and when I try to eat it...WOW! it's hard as rock! how can we make it not tooth-breaking hard?
They should not get that hard. Are you keeping them wrapped?
