AHi Everyone..

What is the best way you would do this? I am making a 1/2 sheet cake and decorating it with a school bus on top of the cake.. I was planning on making it out of Fondant.. What is the best way to go about this? Should I make the bus out of Rice Krispy Treast and them cover them in Fondant? All I would have to do is stack them to look like a bus and carve the front of the bus correct? What would you do?

Thank you so so much!!

I'm doing some research and am finding out that some bakers are using melted chocoate first to cover the RKT and fill in the gaps and then using fondant.. Could I get away with just using melted choocalte instead of fondant or will that look bad?

ATo fill in the gaps, yes, before putting the fondant on. Personally I don't bother with filling gaps first, I use two layers of fondant. Thin one over the RKT, smoothed down with a lot of pressure, to fill the gaps, then another layer smoothed lightly. Usually don't have to do any more than that.
