Will melted candy melts poured over RKT smoothen the bumpy effect of the cereal treats?? I have tried just covering in fondant but you still see the bumps underneath.

Anything else you can suggest?

Nope. It will still look bumpy. However, it will be much more delicious. icon_smile.gif

Here's a couple things you can try -- before adding the cereal to the mixture, crush it with your hands to make the pieces smaller. Give your molded piece a 'spackle' coat of royal icing to smooth the surface. When dry, apply your fondant. Or, you may just be able to roll your fondant thicker and apply one layer of fondant.

I use a base coat of buttercream over the Rice Krispies Treats to smooth out the bumps, then either chocolate clay or fondant over that.

I put the a layer of buttercream icing , but I did crush the rice krispies first.
and then I did a thicker layer of fondant, and I couldn't even tell the difference between the cake and the RKT.

I compact my finished RKTs as I'm molding/modeling them and they're pretty smooth when I'm finished.

I then coat them with melted candy melts and then they're very smooth--and very sturdy and stable.

Thanks for the tips! I searched on here, on you tube, google and bing and I got nothingicon_smile.gif I hate to ask questions because their are always some that complain about the "hobby" "for fun" cakers asking questions. So I search and search and search. I am sorry in advance for any misspellings or such that are "pet peeves" of some. Oopps so sorry to ranticon_wink.gif
