Wow, that's pretty big! If it were me I would melt some chocolate/candy melts and add to your RKT, this strengthens it and helps it hold together, otherwise it could break apart on you. I might also consider using some sort of non-edible frame (if it doesn't have to be edible) such as styro to build it on...perhaps make a large cardboard template for yourself to get the correct shape/proportions when working with the RKT.

Best luck wishes.

I'd do just what the tv cakers do - fondant covered stryrofoam.

Thank you for replying. Does it have to be candy melts or can it be any kind of chocolate? I was condidering makeing a card board template but how would I do that do I wrap it around the card board or do I make a lip at the bottom of the cardboard and stack the rkt?

fondant covered stryrofoam.

I did not even think of that. That is a great idea, thanks
