When you put fondant over rice crispies how do you make it to where it is not bumpy? Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Cover the RCT when dry with cooled ganache. Make your dark choc ganache 1 part cream to two parts chocolate and leave overnight, the next day it will be the consistency of peanut butter. Spread onto your RCT mould, then let airdry. You can get the ganache very smooth, so when the fondant is applied over the ganache there are no bumps. My Leonardo cake has a RCT head, covered in ganache and fondant if you'd like to see the result.

You can use RI to spread over it also

Aww thanks Bettyviolet...I kind of have a rough idea in my head when I start but I don't follow a plan, really. Sculpting is really one of my favourite parts to this business, so I am always happy to make a 3D cake, or figurines to go on top of a cake!

If I have one tip, it is to allow yourself enough time to make a figurine. You need to let things dry properly before adding bits to it. For example, with my Sugar People, I always make the torsos a week before, then the legs dry on for a day or two with the heads attached but not decorated. Then I do the rest in one day. I hope this helps!
