My first time trying an RKT figure. Making a "flyring" raptor that rests around middle tier of cake. I took a wire and shaped it in general form, mixed RKT, pressed and pressed it on. Allowed to sit over night. This morning there are pieces on the counter...pieces just fell off.
I used 6 cups of Rice Krispies which I processed a bit in the food processor (coarse chop, no dust).
10 oz of marshmallows
2 tablespoons of butter (instead of the 3 the recipe calls for)
Why did the pieces fall?
And also, it is still slightly soft, not terribly, but a bit. Is that ok?
From here I microplane and sculpt the shape, the brush with candy melts, allow to cool, then add thin layer of shortening and cover with fondant right?......I don't want to use buttercream.
