I am doing a strawberry shortcake cake in a few weeks and need to make a large strawberry on the top similiar to the cake in the link. I know they have posted it's carved cake, but I really stink at carving! I have never used RKT to sculpt but they seem like they would be easier? Also when using them, do you sculpt, then cover in buttercream, then fondant? Or how do you get them so smooth? I just don't know which one I should attempt first. Tips appreciated!

Carving cake would be easier and it really isn't that hard for a berry.RKT can become too heavy and it is difficlut to get the bumps out of it so it doesn't show through under the fondant.

Mine was rkt covered in buttercream and fondant. Hand sculpted the rkt (my first time) and it was easier than expected, I also inserted straws and cake board between cake and strawberry.
