ladyblahblah...can I ask what brand you use?
When working with RKT I'd rather stack the pre-made squares together and carve the shape rather than compress them into a blob and try to mold it...   You can see an example of something I made using this method...scroll down: https://www.facebook.com/notes/partyflours-mimi/how-to-make-a-plate-syrup-pourer/266305146854604   For that size owl, stacking & carving Treats would work perfectly, I think.   (Also, I cover in a thin coat of ganache because when it dries you...
No problem
The waves in your photo look peeled back, but here's a great tutorial that should help : http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/06/how-to-make-wave-ruffles/
You're welcome...   (and Thanks!)
When I made one ages ago I pressed a real (brand new out of the package) zipper into a piece of fondant then trimmed around it...you can see it here: https://www.facebook.com/250240051794447/photos/pb.250240051794447.-2207520000.1395455252./250859351732517/?type=3&permPage=1   To get an even more realistic one now, I would make a mold...I wouldn't spend money on mold-making materials either, I would use gumpaste or fondant + tylose and press a zipper into it, let it dry...

Here's the best recipe I've ever tried...admittedly I haven't tried many, and I've only made this one twice and both times I used Nestle white morsels, but it's still the best: http://savorysweetlife.com/2009/10/alices-chocolate-chip-cookie-recipe/   The first time I thought they were near perfect, just a little too sweet (I know the white chips didn't help).   The next time I cut back the sugar and it did the trick, but I can't find the paper I wrote the notes...
