Elmo layed to rest on Thurs 3:30 p.m. - Page 2

post #16 of 60
How sad! I always have a hard time using RKT, I think I keep the house too warm or use too much marshmallow, anyway, I sympathise. Good luck on try #2!

hahahahahahahahaha eye poppin'


I pounded mine....I rolled it into a ball and literally pounded it on the counter until it was SOLID.

It just looked a bit loose(the oatmeal effect), I thought that may have been the case.

Hilarious story, although I am sorry your Elmo had to take such a beating just for our amusement.

I use rkt and never had this problem. I tried to make a girl sitting up once and it started to pull apart that night. Maybe that is what happened, I tried to stack too tall.
I'm sorry that your loss made me laugh soooo hard! I had to show Hubby, who thinks there was fowl play. lol

mommak, I am so very sorry this happen to you, but things happen for a reason....I was satting here crying, saw your headline, click on it, read the post, saw the pictures....and now I am crying tears from laughing so hard. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Please forgive me. Now all I can think is things like (in a Elmo voice) Ohhhhhh Noooo Elmo Fall Down! Elmo has big boo boo!
Elmo lost his is head! Can you help Elmo find his head?
Elmo don't feel so good! Elmo shouldn't have went partying!
Bad man eat Elmo's eye! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I am so so sorry but God Bless you & Elmo for making me laugh so hard.

O.K. laugh time over (for just a min), I have make some things out of RKT, but only a few...this is a tip I read here on CC, don't add the butter to the RKT mixture...and last time I made something with the RKT's I mix some melted candy melts with it, after I shape it I put it in the fridge to let the candy set, after that I was able to decorate.

I don't know if the candy melt would work with something like a Elmo head or not, but I do know that leaving the butter out of mixture helps and compressing as much and as hard as you can will help. I hope maybe this can help you out some.

Again sorry for your mishap, but I have love the laugh.
God Bless,
Sharon
EDITED: to say, if I can I also try to stick a sucker stick so far into it, then the other end into the cakes, to help give it support.

Yes, I think I would question the first one at the scene of the crime. What was he doing up at 2:30 AM? Why does the Elmo's nose have that suspicious red coloring on the end of it? If he had fallen on his own, how would the red have gotten on the end of his nose? It looks like the crime scene has been manipulated. Hmmmm....

Way to funny kathy lol...my son was getting home from work at 2:30 a.m., he's 18. I thought about Monk when I seen this....the gore may have been to much for him.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll def give some of them a try. I really don't want to go through this again. It was SO much work and SO much cake that was lost in the explosion.

I did have a back up plan in case something was to go wrong..thank goodness!! Sheet cakes are life savers! thumbs_up.gif

I've never attempted anything quite like that so I'm no help with the advice...

Hmmm...ive built bases for cakes out of rkt.....but I did put a dowl through the base and the cake on a cake board cut to fit...... see the banana split cake in my avatar....the whole base is RKT. From the bottom to the base of the cake. I also use the reg. recipe BUT....i let it dry overnight left out uncovered. And the fridge might have been your culprit. RK and fridge sometimes are no no 's but your Elmos was darling! icon_smile.gif
