I've made a 3d football out of rice crispy treat. Obviously I want the football to look realistic I've worked with fondant before but not with this odd shape. Any advice, tricks or suggestions on how to get a great looking football would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Real footballs have a seam. Cover one half then flip over and cover the other half.
Myslady....yeah I thought about that tonight. What has me worried is making it smooth. I read somewhere it was best to put a thin layer of white chocolate on the rice crispies after it is formed. Well the football was smooth before the chocolate...not as much after. This really SHOULDN'T be this difficult
Any suggestions are more than welcome
Take a small grater and grate it smooth before applying fondant. I read this, tried it, and it worked great!
I always crush up my krispies before making the marshmallow treats, then after formed and firm, I paint with white chocolate. Firm up again and cover with fondant.
I frost the RKT just like I would a cake. For odd shapes, I use thin coats of buttercream and chill between coats. Fondant goes on nice and smooth.
Thank you guys soooo much. Your advice saved my butt.
