If I am using rice krispie treats on a cake how far in advance can I make them? I am planning on covering them with fondant. Also, how do you make it look smooth? This may be a dumb question but do usually eat the parts made of rice krispies?
AI use ready made purchased rkt, so I'd say you can make them at least several days in advance. For smoothness I just made the &^#^& out of them. You'll want to coat them in a little BC for the fondant to stick. I'd eat them.
Thanks for the response! That helps a ton!
AI make my own rkt. They keep well long, would say weeks for sure although I normally just make a batch I'm using for a specific design. I cut all the nasty lumps and bumps off with a knife and then apply RI to smooth it. To apply fondant use tiny amount of EG to stick it on.
AHi everyone, new to posting on CC. Just had a question about RKT. First time covering RKT with fondant, I'm making a hello kitty cake topper and would like to know how to place de head and arms on the figure. Do i mold the whole figure in one piece (which I find hard)? Or do I make multiple pieces? But then how do i connect them to each other for them to stay sturdy?
you can connect the pieces (arms & head) with toothpicks or thin dowels or lollipop sticks (depending on the size & weight. add some melted chocolate to glue the connection
AThank you so much!!
