Hello, Whenever I use rice krispy treats to make something and cover them with buttercream and then fondant the object comes out bumpy. what am I doing wrong? I take the treats and mold them into the object I want, I then use buttercream place it in the fridge then put fondant over it and it never comes out smooth. Please help!
YOU CAN TRY A NICE THICK GANACHE INSTEA OT BUTTERCREAM- IT COVERS BETTER OR I HAVE ALSO USED ROYAL ICING.
Please don't bump.
Since you brought it up... It's actually a huge pet-peeve of mine.
Please don't bump
It's unnecessary, it clogs the forum with useless posts and most likely it's going to get deleted anyway
The best thing to do is post a quick reply. For example
instead of typing 'bump' and making that your entire post...
Say something, like 'anyone else have an idea?'
Or something to that effect....It's short, its sweet, it accomplishes what you want... bumping the thread to the most recent and it actually adds something to the conversation.
This isn't a rule, just a request from me to help me keep my sanity while moderating the forum and trying to keep it organized for everyone.
Additionally, Jackie and Heath never intended registered CC members to be glued to the homepage waiting for the limited preview of posts to change.
Instead, why not use "view posts since last visit" feature tab viewable when in any forum (and soon to be found on the homepage). This feature allows you to view ALL posts entered since your last visit -- not just those entered since your current log-in. You'll have pages of posts to choose from instead of a maximum of ten....
If all members used "view posts since last visit" - no post in any forum would be overlooked and all posts would be available and waiting for viewing at your convenience.
And if a member is "watching" the thread for updates - it's frustrating to receive an email notification of a new post which only consists of bump.
I am sorry what is a "bump". I posted a question and that was the reply I got. Then a long reply from Jackie?
@scratchdog, try melting some white chocolate or candy melts, and then brushing them on your rice krispy treats with a pastry brush. It will give you a smoother finish on which to apply your fondant. Check out the dinosaur cake in my gallery. That's what I did with his head. Good luck!
After I have the shape I want, and before I coat it with buttercream or candy melts, I take the back of a wooden spoon and use pressure to smooth the RCT. The more smooth you can make the surface before you coat it the more smooth your finished product will be. When I find an area the still won't smooth, I use a very sharp knife to shave the surface. When you cover your sculpture with buttercream or candy melts you want to make sure the surface is still smooth before you apply your fondant. You might find that candy melts (or melted chocolate) works better because you can use the heat of your hands to help smooth the surface. I used this technique on all three of these:
