I will be working with RKT, what is the best way to get a smooth effect? I will be covering them with fondant. Thank you, Eva

coat with ganache once you're done molding, and before you cover with fondant. Gives a nice,s mooth finish. Also, using a lot of pressure when you're molding the figure helps make the surface a little more even ... but the ganache (or candy coating) is the best. HTH!

I take a hand held zester / fine cheese grater and shave the rough edges down. Works great!

Yes, you can put fondant over candy coating. Spray your piece very lightly with a fine mist of water or smear a tiny bit of crisco over it and then apply your fondant. This gives the fondant something to stick to.

I used this method for the sail boat cake in my photos. HTH. thumbs_up.gif

I put fondant over candy coating all the time, I use either a little Crisco or butter over the coating for the fondant to stick. icon_smile.gif

When I use RKT, I cover the RKT with royal icing, then smooth it with a pliable piece of plastic. If the royal icing dries before you add the fondant, just brush on a very little bit of water before adding the fondant. icon_smile.gif
