I was wondering if there is a special recipe you use for rice krispy treats, when using it to mold figures on a cake? I've never used it before for this. I used the basic recipe of the box to mold the head of a cartoon character, then covered it in buttercream and it just broke apart after I attached it to the cake, I did use some skewers as supports to attach the head to the body. When i was working with it it was very sticky, and not real firm, of course it is a very hot and humid day here. Anyway, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

When I've done it, I put the rice krispies in the blender before mixing them with the marshmallow, and left out the butter in the recipe. It's heavy and dense, but smooth under the fondant (and I didn't need buttercream to glue the fondant on).

I just used the regular recipe and it worked alright. Maybe it's the humidity? (I'm in the Seattle area so not very humid). The PP suggestion sounds like a good one. Good Luck!

I buy the premade ones. They're strong and easy to use.

Yes, putting them in the blender first helps.....makes them not so lumpy and no buttericon_wink.gif
