Modeling rice krispy treats - Page 2

post #16 of 53
I made some rk figures for the first time at halloween, made the normal recipe, but I always add peanut butter as well about 3/4 cup melted with the butter. Next time I make figures with rk, I am going to pulse them a bit in the food processor thinking I might get a smoother form. I dipped my figures in melted chocolate, let it harden then covered with fondant and painted the fondant.
I kinda did a mock up of what you might be thinking of?? If not, lol just disregard. icon_redface.gif

You did a really nice job on this cake. I haven't used rice krispies to mold shapes, but I would think that a thin coating of buttercream would work, or a thicker layer of fondant.

I cover my sculpt with white chocolate before I cover in fondant.   The chocolate goes in the nooks and cranny's and makes a very smooth base.    Also, take the cereal and put it in a big ziplock and roll over it with a rolling pin to break down the big pieces.

I have also had trouble getting my rkt smooth but I recently made a whale topper and covered it in melted chocolate. After putting it in the freezer for a few minutes I took a fine cheese grater and sanded it down and then used the heat from my hands to smooth the chocolate. Then I covered it in more chocolate and smoothed it down again. Finally I covered it in fondant. I was very pleased with the results!

When making a rice crispy treats sculpture, I cover it in melted chocolate. White or regular chocolate. I cover it in a few coats, letting it dry in between, Then I smooth it by rubbing the chocolate with

my hands. The warmth of my hands melts the chocolate and I can rub it til it's very smooth. Then cover with fondant. I did Hello Kittys head with this method and her head came out perfectly smooth.

How long do you need to let the RKT dry before decorating? Also, is there something else that would be used to help modeling chocolate stick to the hand or is BC the way to go for the glue?

i let mine dry overnight--

 

re the modeling chocolate--depends on what you are sticking it to (that sounds funny ;) but it depends on the other surface--

 

so sticking modeling choco to what? suspended  in air on the side of a cake? or sitting on a cake board?

I will be doing hands that will be laying on the side of the cake. I figured that I would sculpt the hands out of RKTs and cover them in modeling chocolate. I haven't done this before so I am trying to find out the best way to do this. What do you think?

post #28 of 53

i think i would probably use all modeling chocolate and yes just a dab of buttercream to hold them in place--

 

sometimes melted chocolate can be used in some cases where more glue power is required

If I need this for Saturday, I should be able to sculpt it tonight and cover it tomorrow? How stiff should my BC be or is spreading consistency OK? Is there any other recommendations for making this successful?

The cake is very cute!!

I use buttercream to smooth my rice krispy or melt white candy melts and smooth that on before fondant. Sometimes if it's still lumpy, I will put another layer of fondant to make sure it's smooth. The rice krispys always stay very fresh under the fondant!
