Just wondering if anyone has done an element on their cake that they sculpted from rice krispies than coereved with fondant.
I have a baby shower cake I am doing and I want to try out this technique. Do you need a particular recipe? Do you have to frost the krispies before you cover in fondant? etc....yada, yada, yada...

I just used the regular rice krispie treat recipe on the box. I did cut back on the margarine some...maybe about half the amount. I know that some just buy the already made rice Krispie treats and use those to sculpt with. I frosted mine lightly with buttercream mainly to help smooth out the little lumps.

So glad you posted this question. I have someone who wants a soccerball on top of a cake and the ball is to be made of RKT. He's so excited about the ball cause he wants to eat it. Is it going to be any good to eat????

I just made a Transformers cake, with the Allspark on top. I had read to cut back on the butter, but I didn't alter the directions and i didn't have any problems. I let it dry for a day or so, and sculpted as I needed. It is still pliable which I liked. It gave me room for mistakes. I did mess up on my cube the first time around, but what is great, is that it doesn't take long to make another could probably freeze it to hurry the drying time.

I made an entire wedding cake out of RKT.
Here is the recipe I used:
10 oz regular marshmallows
2 TBS Margarine
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups Rice Krispies

They were the BEST RKT ever!

I did add a crumb coat of butter cream before adding fondant to have a very smooth finish!

The carriage on the Cinderella cake in my photos is RKT. I cheated and just used the premade bars. I really didn't want to make a big batch for such a small object. I covered the RKT with a thin layer of royal icing (because I had it on hand and thought it would dry harder than BC), let it dry, then covered the carriage with fondant.
