What kind of support system would be prefered to support RKT on the cake ? Or do you just place the RKT on the cake and then cover ?

I'm making a head and neck out of the RKT for an upcoming Dragon cake and was just curious on how to go about it .

I generally glue the RKT, that has been completed, on cake board, cut to size, and use plastic straws to support it. Has worked very well. HTH

What I usually do is make my RK treat piece, let it firm up completely and then spike it onto a secured dowel. It also helps to use white chocolate as glue and to harden up the outside of the whole piece.
