Are there any good tips on covering a RKT ball with MMF? I'm trying to 'attempt' a princess carriage.
Thanks in advance,
I covered a RKT pumpkin in fondant. I did nothing different than I would covering a cake, I just layed it over the RKT and trimmed away the excess. I didn't bother adding anything to help the fondant stick because the RKT was sticky enough by itself. Hope that helped!
I've been told you can melt white chocolate over top to give it a smooth finish before putting on the fondant.
I have covererd RKT in fondant before - it looked very bumpy - so I covered it in icing - then put fondant over top!
the barn on my barnyard cake is RKT covered in MMF. So is the baseball hat on one of the cakes. I mush the RKT in my hands to make them a little finer then add the marshmallow. Then I ice it with buttercream to make it smoother and make the fondant a little thicker.
Maybe modeling chocolate is better?
I have used RKT on a few of my cakes and the donkey in my pics is all RKT and the way that I covered it was to mold it to what ever shape than I used BC to cover which gave me a way to smooth the fondant on top, it also has to be a little thicker so it doesn't break and it worked like a charm and I was able to get more definition too! Hope this helps.
There is a thread on here that explains how to do it. You use a rectangle piece of fondant and wrap it around it it, and then push the edges toward the exposed part. Make any sense? Sorry, I would recommend looking for that thread! It has pictures.
If this might be a help to you--you can use a zester to shave off the nubblies on the rkt so the fondant can be all nice & smoothy smooth without additional icing between them.
