Hello, I am making a duck shaped cake and can't get the rice krispy treat head to stay on the body. It's covered in fondant (a couple of layers and it still looks bumpy icon_sad.gif ) I stuck in a couple of dowels in the neck and tried to attach it and it just fell off slowly...same deal with the tail which is also RKT...please help if possible I have to deliver it in the morning!!!!

I would treat it like a cake layer. I would make a slight flat bottom and put it on a small circle cake board with a hole in it. One dowel would go through the head, down through the hole, and then all the way to the bottom of the cake base board.
I would also use some royal icing to adhere the head to the small circle, and the circle to the cake below it.
Another set of dowels (probably 3) would go from the bottom cake board to the bottom of the small circle board under the ducks head. These must be level, like you would use to stack a tiered cake
