I've made a 3d football out of rice crispy treat. Obviously I want the football to look realistic icon_lol.gif 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 icon_smile.gif

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. icon_cry.gif This really SHOULDN'T be this difficult icon_confused.gif

Any suggestions are more than welcome icon_lol.gif

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.
