I made a rookie mistake. Made numbers with premade rice krispie treats. I decide the "1" would be find on a skewer and was planning on doing the "3" with wire and skewer. Got caught up in the moment and did not use the wire on the 3. Should I start over with the 3. Will the rice krispies dry on their own? I am planning on covering with white chocolate and then I was going to cover in gumpaste, thinking it would make it even stronger. I will then airbrush. Thank you for your help.
It should be okay, without the wire. I've never made numbers from rct, but I would maybe go light on the chocolate on the extended parts to keep the weight down. Hope it holds up for you.
thanks so much for your help. do you think I would be better leaving the chocolate off and just covering with some buttercream/ gumpaste and let dry. I do have 4 days drying time.
I used white chocolate under marshmallow fondant and it worked out great. I have never tried gumpaste though. I would think that it will be fine without the wire. I usually let my rice krispies dry about 24 hours before covering with MMF, but I don't think you would have to wait that long. It is just the way it works out for me with working full-time. I do all my caking after work.
I wouldn't think chocolate vs buttercream would make a big difference. Maybe let the rct dry for a day the cover with chocolate and gumpaste and give it time to set and if it stands for a while then you'll know. And you'll still have time.
thanks so much all. Wish me luck.
Interesting, let the RKT dry? why??? I have never done this, and I have not had a problem! Am I missing something Oh please tell me in case I have a disaster waiting to happen!! I love using that stuff to make mini sculptures with that are too small for cake, but too large for gumpaste!
Hi Ladies, I have some question on RKT.
I tot of making the RKT for my laptop screen. As mentioned above, I will cover my RKT with chocolate and thn fondant.
Will it be steady enough to stand? Thank you.
I let my castle walls dry for a day before covering and they were supported with PVC. It worked out great. This weekend when I made a dragon with the super high humidity they just wanted to sink they refused to set up. If you need them to stand like a laptop screen make sure they set up well and have them in a temperature controlled room.
