Im Making a 3D Elmo out of PVC pipe, he will be "standing" on 1 foot on top of 2 tiers. I already have the pipe made and shaped the body out of RKT's. My question is, do I need to cover the the RKT with ganache or fondant to help keep it together "BEFORE" piping the Royal Icing fur on it? I woke up this morning and noticed the head was starting to split right in the middle, were there is no support under the bottom part of the head. Just not sure if adding a Lot more weight will be the answer. What would you do? Thanks icon_smile.gif

A lot of people use melted candy melts (chocolate discs), we did like the way the royal and fondant wouldn't stick to the candy melts. We had much better luck with royal icing, tint the thick coating red then white won't show through the fur.

Good luck!
