you could do the head in a cupcake except cut the top of the muffin in half making a half moon on top...then the neck could be made out of RKT's supporting the head...Voila!!! icon_smile.gif

Oh you cover the rice krispies with the fondant...I myself would cover them with a LIGHT coating of butter cream then adhere the fondant....let the RKT dry in the posistion you want it to be in then run a skewer in through the side that won't be seen as to help adhere it to the body of the same with the head

Hope I made this clear..

The turtles head looks pretty large you might want to mold rice crispy treats then cover in fondant so you don't have such a heavy head like you would with fondant then use skewers or dowels in the back to stick straight into the turtles body to attach.Good luck post a picture when you are done thumbs_up.gif

That is so cute! Where did the photo come from?

Ditto on the advice. I learned on CC to crush the rice Krispies first so they will cover more smoothly. And yes, I learned the hard way that you should let it dry in the shape you want first--and THEN cover in fondant and pop in the stick.
