I think I have the idea down in my head, so I just wanted to see what you all think. I was thinking of using the rice krispie recipe but with little or no butter and maybe putting the rice krispies in the food processor to make them more fine. I was also thinking I should mold it while warm and let sit and then trim if needed with a knife. Then I was going to trace the molded barn on cardstock to make templates and then just cut fondant/gumpaste panels let them dry some and then glue them on with frosting. I was hoping someone that has made one could let me know if this sounds right or if they have any tips or suggestions.
TIA

I just made a barn last weekend and did it out of rice crispie treats. I actually used the premade ones that you purchase in the store. They are much firmer than home made ones. I use them for something that is going to be tall and need to hold its shape. Mine was about 6 inches high and 3 inches wide. I then covered it in fondant panels like you are suggesting. I then added the roof in strips to look like a shaker style roof. I can email it to you for you to look at. Just pm me your email. I didn't upload it to hear yet. I am trying to upload now, but having some problems. I did it a few days before I needed it, and the fondant dried. I left the bottom exposed to be able to put a dowel through it...hope this helps!

I made a barn out of rkt for this cake. I made the standard recipe and just molded the shape I wanted while still warm. After I had the shape I wanted, I traced the rkt on paper to make a template (each side.) Then I cut out the fondant (that I had already used a woodgrain impression mat on) using the templates for each side. I adhered the fondant with a coat of buttercream and covered the seams with a white strip. I did the roof in strips. I think it was adorable.
