Hello to everyone! This is my first post on here and I can't believe I never knew of this website before now! I have a sports themed cake I am making, and plan on making a basketball, baseball, and football out of RKT. To me it seems fairly easy, but I'm concerned with gravity and it pulling on my fondant on the round balls. Should I use a thick layer of BC, let it sit, and then cover with fondant. I see a lot of people talking about modeling chocolate but I have never used it and am more comfortable with fondant. Any tips or suggestions will be grateful! (I hope I made sense about what I was asking for!)

I just used rkt on my shoe cake, things i'll do next time. Crush up the rk before adding the marshmallows to get a smoother surface. I did coat the rkt with melted chocolate liked that. I did 2 layers of fondant because I wanted a really smooth surface. Lots of fun to work with, this was my first try. Good luck!!
