Rice krispie is the british name for the product, but does anyone know how to make rice krispies stick together so you have a solid foundation to build on vertical cake or so you can sculp on it, I have seen this being used on various cake decoration show but have never seen how it is made, I suspect some kind of glucose or glycerine.
Any help please welcome
I need this a.s.a.p.
They are made with marshmallow and butter.
here is the recipe
Not sure if your familiar with rice krispie treats, but its a mixture of melted marshmallows, vanilla & margarine (or butter), & then add rice krispies.
If you are just going to sculpt with this then I suggest to melt your marshmallows (desired amount) no real recipe to this then add enough rice krispies so that when you squeeze mixture in your hands it will hold its shape.
I don't add margarine to the mixture if I'm only using it to sculpt with & vanilla can be omitted as well however I add about 1 tsp. to my mix.
Some people crush the rice krispies up before adding it to the melted marshmallows so you get a smoother appearance from the moulded mixture.
Hope that helps.
Thanks to all
You can also mix in melted white chocolate to the treats- it keeps the sculpted piece firm.
I have blended the cereal first, then add the marshmallows. It worked very well. The only disadvantage is you end up with less to work with, but it does leave a smooth finish. I have also seen on here that mixing the RKT with modeling chocolate makes it really easy to work with. I haven't tried this yet but if I was sculpting a difficult cake, I would probably try this method.

I have the same issue. I have an order for a very large Ice Hockey rick. My biggest problem was the goalie net. After watching a competition on Foodnetwork I borrowed this idea that seems to be working.
Mix marshmallows and rice Krispies as usual, while the block of product is drying shape it the way you need it, frost with buttercream and cover with fondant. I don't have pictures yet but this seems to be working.
