Any idea what would be the best thing to cover a ball with? I am trying to make a 3d piranha plant off of the Mario game. I have made the actual flower pot from cake & the flower from RKT & covered it in RI.

I have red fondant but I really don't want the seems to show any more than they have to. I have made red 'Candy Clay' using the Wilton candy melts (which I have never worked with before) but I am afraid it's not gonna stay attached to the bottom of the RKT. I have thought about mixing the two but I wasn't sure about that either... icon_cry.gif

Any ideas??? TIA!

This is the general idea of what I am trying to make...


Thanks again!

Fondant or candy clay/modeling chocolate will work just fine.

You can put some corn syrup, piping gel, or buttercream, on the RKTs to get good adherence.

Yep you can use either. I like modeling chocolate when I have to smooth seams, though, as I have better luck getting it to blend than when I use fondant.
