Hello all!
I wondering... what's the best way to stick fondant to rice krispie treats? Someone here said to try melted chocolate. I'm just wondering if there's other way too because I don't work with chocolate that much. Can you use buttercream? Thanks so much!

In the past I've used both royal icing and buttercream, depending on what I've been working with on the cake, but if there is a better way, I'd love to know! icon_biggrin.gif

Me too, I was about to ask that same question. All I know is that people use a lot of fondant to cover the bumps.

I usually rub shortening all over the RKT and then lay fondant. I prefer to use two layers of fondant.

I do a thin layer of buttercream on top of the rice krispy treat; this usually fills in the holes pretty nicely. Then I place the fondant on top of it and mold it to the shape. If it still looks too bumpy, I have put another layer of fondant over it and that has helped. HTH : )

I use buttercream like spackle to fill all of the holes and crevices, and then apply to fondant onto my now-smooth-as-silk molded object icon_smile.gif
