I am about to make a 3D Duck, but the rubber ducky pan won't work for the Aflack duck. My plan is to carve the body from cake and the neck and head will be molded from RKT's - but I've never done RKT''s!
Should I carve the body before constructing the neck and head or start with neck and head first to match dimensions?
Do I use the RKT's before they've cooled or smoosh them post-cooling?
I love the Aflac duck!
I think you could do it either way - carve first or mold first... But you might want to do the neck/head first because it needs to "set".
I smoosh them while they're still kind of warm, but you can do them while cool. You can even use the premade ones. I read on here that if you roll some of the RKs into a "powder" before making the treats, they won't be as lumpy. You may have to reform them regardless to get them very solid.
I would put a skewer or lollipop stick in the RKT for support.
