I know a lot of people use chocolate but I have had success with buttercream. Worked just fine. I did, however, crush my RKT. Left them in a ziploc and had my daughter go to town smashing them. It made the model less bumpy. Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif

thank-you. yes i went with alittle melted chocolate. it worked fine.
the baseball bat is laying flat so i dont need to worry about the stability.
i just dont think it looks too much like a baseball bat. hopefully once im done with it - it will pass as one! LOL

I actually cover my RKT with a layer of almond paste/marzipan because you can mold and smooth the object before applying the fondant.
