I need help! my dad's birthday is soon and I'd like to make him a special cake. He's been a cop for 30 years and is still training guys how to shoot so I was gonna do a gun out of rkt but what's the best way to mold/shape it???? I'd appreciate ANY advice! thanks
If I'm in a hurry, I sometimes used the premade RKT, but for the best molding, I make my own. The tip that I have is to crush up the rice krispies before you mix them in with the marshmallows and butter. It will make for a much finer product to mold with. Good luck, and post pics when you're done!
You could also do one of those targets (paper bodies) cops practice shooting at... If you want to do a gun, then check the galleries and when you see some you like, PM the person for advice. Good luck!
another tip i got from cc's here is to use melted chocolate instead of royal icing on the RKT, i used this method to make tires for my tractor cake and it worked great! set up real fast and was really easy to work with. hth and good luck!
