A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2922173/width/200/height/400[/IMG] I am making a baby rump cake I used rice krispies for the legs, butt, and feet. I iced them covered them with fondant but they are lumpy. What did I do wrong?
ARKT,s I think you have to ice a couple times until you have them nice and smooth. Its either that or the fondant didn't adhere to the icing I would guess.
AI am hoping the blanket will cover it considering I am out of time to fix it :-(
I always cover RKT with melted chocolate or ganache (if I happen to have any I need to use up) for a smooth finish. I know a lot of people run the krispies through a food processor or blender for a couple seconds before adding marshmallows to minimize lumps.
Would you just roll it in the melted chocolate?
A[IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2922547/width/200/height/400[/IMG] well here is the final picture. I think it turned out good.
I let it cool just a little so it is a little spreadable and put it on with a spatula. Then I pop it in the fridge to firm up and pull it out to smooth with a hot knife and/or a pastry brush.
I prefer to use ganache, but sometimes I don't feel like making it
AThank you for the tip :-)
That is a lovely cake, well done you xx
Beautiful cake! I cover the rice krispies in a thick layer of buttercream, then put it in the fridge for an hour. Once I take it out it is firm and I coat in another layer of buttercream. Also make sure the fondant layer is thick enough! I use rice krispies all the time!
AI will try that too. Thank you :-)
AHow do you make ganache? Love the final outcome of the cake, beautiful.
