Here's a step by step tutorial on making a sitting Elmo cake topper from RKT that should be helpful:

If you need a very smooth surface for your fondant, you can either cover the bumpy RKT with R/I or buttercream.

Some members have even sanded the RKT's:

By the way, you can sand royal icing. I used to do that for cake shows back in the 70's when fondant was not really known. When doing the royal icing and sanding it, I would do that procedure 3 or 4 times. Yes, you do want a smooth surface for the fondant. You could even put some buttercream over the royal icing when it dries.
