I am making a figure out of RKT and covering it in modeling chocolate. I was wondering, how hard does it get when it dries? I want to make sure that it won't stay soft and malleable when I am finished with it.
Also, how should I support it on top of a 2 tier cake? It is about the size of a baseball. I tried sticking a wooden dowel on the bottom for the beginning process so that it can dry without laying directly on itself, but the stick ended up going through the head of the figure. ( I guess I didn't compact the RKT enough and I was putting to much pressure on it when covering it with modeling chocolate.) So how should I support it on the cake? Should I put a bubble tea straw under it and stick it to the cake with melted chocolate?
