I've never used rice crispy and fondant because I'm new to the whole cake decorating business icon_smile.gif so I'm wondering how do you make it so the fondant doesn't look bumpy covering the rice crispy? How do you get it to stick? I plan on using marshmallow fondant.

You can cover the rice krispy piece with buttercream, ganache or modeling chocolate to get a smooth surface prior to fondant.

I use royal icing to cover the bumps, then let it dry and wet lightly and cover in fondant.

For the teddy bear here I covered the RKT with buttercream and then fondant:

For the kayak here (where the surface had to be pervectly smooth and blemish free) I covered the RKT with candymelts and then the fondant:
