I am making a BMX cake for my son this weekend, and I am going to make the ramps out of RKT. Every time we make them, they turn out hard. I have read that it is because I push them down into the pan.
But I am wondering, if anybody has any ideas on how to keep them soft, like the ones you buy in the store??? (I know that the bunch of boys that are going to be at this party are going to want to eat them, and I don't want anybody breaking a tooth. )
I was thinking that if we didn't add as many marshamallows? But not sure???? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!!!!

Also, I have to color fondant to look like cement. I am thinking just a tad of black will do the trick. Any suggestions? How about texturing it to make it look like cement? Without a texture mat.???

the best thing to do is buy the family pack of rice krispy treats and use them. another member suggested that to me and bless their heart it worked.

to get that textured cement look you can make an impression by crinkling/wading up a piece of paper and then pressing into the fondant.

good luck

If you have a GFS marketplace close they sell big squares of RKT that feed like 20 and you could use that, the cake I just did this past weekend I used them for the ramps and I also used them for the texture in the green.

UGH! We don't have one! I live in pretty small town, with no cake supply stores. I was thinking about Sams club, but I would still pay more there than it would cost to make them.

I found this recipe on Sugar Sweet's blog (a.k.a AngelFood4 on cc)
She uses vegetable oil instead of butter so the RKT don't go stale as fast.

Have a look:
