Rice Krispy treats and fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 78
I have to give credit for this idea to a decorator from Adelaide SA. She showed me. (I added the cling wrap cos I didn't like having to brush all the flour off my flowers etc.)

Here you go. I just did this very quick demo for you. I would normally take a bit more time to shape my figure it suits its purpose.

Candy melts are chocolate or vanilla flavored candy that is melted and brushed onto the form. I used a paintbrush to brush it on.

That would be pleasantly suprised!!!!!!!My computer developed a lisp! LOL

and I am glad I could be of assistance.

Thank you everyone for the advice and thanks brontecakes for the pics, I know i got the right things now...I did buy some RK squares, i didn't make anything with it but i squooshed it around a bit then ate it icon_surprised.gif

I was just thinking, I would have to buy a lot of them to make a fair sized shape, is it cheaper to make your own and how would you do that icon_rolleyes.gif ...i've not seen a recipe on the RK box.

It's a shame i don't need to make any shapes coz i'll have to eat the rest now icon_wink.gif

Oh 1 more thing, I was wondering why you use RK treats and not just fondant or modelling paste, is it easier to work with or cheaper or some other reason ???????

By the way...I love RK treats mmmmmm icon_razz.gif

I think the recipe is inside the box! That is where I found mine! I believe it is 6 cups rice krispies, 1/4 cup butter or margerine, I bag mini marshmallows and 2 tsp vanilla. I like making my own, when they are warm in the pot you can just grab a bunch(with crisco on your hands, and shape it up! It is so easy when it is warm like that) I would definitely make your own if you are doing a lot of RKT on your cake. The reason I used them for my puppy cake is because if they where pure fondant, they would be too heavy for the cake. I do believe it cost me less using the Rice Krispie recipe over all fondant, or buying them in a bar....and they are really easy to make! thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif

RKTs are used instead of fondant if the figure is going to be large, or if you need to add apiece that is somewhat suspended that you don't want to fall off due to gravity. It weighs a lot less and is much less expensive!

I don't coat my RKTs with anything. Crushing the RKs slightly makes them less bumpy, and rolling your fondant thick hides any other bumps.

What i'm gonna do now is eat the rest of my shop bought RK treats and make some when i need them...i'm gonna go to their website, thanks

I can understand now that they are lighter...makes sense to use them icon_redface.gif

I must say that the puppies (sorry, i can't remember who made them, can't do the quote from another post, too complicated icon_cry.gif ) are really sweet..I could just eat them icon_wink.gif

So if i make them how long do they last and do i have to shape them straight away, sorry, so many questions but i've never known anyone to use them, I'll have to contact my old tutor and tell her about them icon_rolleyes.gif
