So, I made a deer head this weekend using a PVC structure. I had a difficult time getting the cereal treat to stick to the pipe.... Especially the back of the head because of gravity. Can anyone tell me the best way to stick cereal treats to the PVC pipe?

I was thinking that maybe marshmallow cream might work. What do you think?

IF, that part of the cake isn't going to be eaten, you could cover the pipe in duct tape or something not as slick as the pvc to help it stick.

Another thing I've started doing with RKT is to cover with candy melts after I shape it. I tried that for the first time last summer when the heat kept melting my marshmallow and I was doing a space ship that was crashing on an angle (the buzz lightyear cake in my photos). I found it hold the RKT solid (once it sets up in the fridge), and doesn't move. If you could mold the RKT around the pipe enough to hold it's shape laying down, I would suppose you could try coating it well with candy melts and letting it setup before standing it up.

Edited to say: OOps, sorry, I thought the photo was in here, but here is a link to see it. There are 6 photos showing the different angles so you can see that the ship is on an angle going into the cake:¤t=Buzz1.jpg
