So I am going to be modeling a wedding cake topper. I was going to make it with RKT and cover with Gumpaste, but I was wondering, does RKT go bad? I mean if the couple decides to keep the model, what happens to it? How far in advance should I start making this model?
Thank you kindly for your advice.
Let's see...about 4 yrs ago I made my SIL a teapot out of RKT covered in fondant and hand painted it. She loved it so much that she sprayed it with a clear lacquer and the last time I was at her house it's still in her hutch.
Now I wouldn't eat it of course but she sprayed it well enough that the thing is still in perfect shape.
But for a wedding cake topper I'd probably make it out of gp so they could safely keep it.
God only knows what's growing inside my SIL's teapot....yuck!
I would love an answer to that one too. I have made a few and know one guy kept his. Maybe I'll give him a call and see how it's holding up. I would imagine it just got hard as a rock.
