Can anyone tell me if I can make flip flops with RKT and cover them with fondant?


IThey're for Saturday for a beach themed cake. They have to stick out of the top of the cake. So just half of the flip flop will show ,so they must be hard.


I don't have access to gumpaste at the moment. So I was thinking of RKT. Anybody done this or any other ideas???


Thanks. Any and all suggestions truly welcomed and appreciated!

I personally have a terrible relationship with RCT .....they never turn out well for me.  If you dont have any gumpaste you can mix tylose power with fondant to make it harden.  What I personally do is after making my shape in fondant i will stick the fondant into a food dehydrator and leave it overnight.  Usually by the next day it is firm enough to do whatever i need to with it.  Hope this helps ;)

Thanks Rachie204! I tried with the RKT and it was a total disaster!  I ended up making a batch of gumpaste and making them out of gumpaste.


The dehydrator sounds like a good idea, will look into it. Thanks
