i remember reading somewhere that you have to use a certain type of marshmellow?? Especially in Australia? Does anyone know about this.

.I vaguely remember something about "Jet Puffed"?

I am new to the forum and to making rice krispy treats. I have gotten alot of great information from this forum.

My question is what icing is best on 3D figures? I have maded a Elmo figure for my grand daughters 2nd birthday, but not sure which icing would be the best.

I would appreciate any information that anyone could give.

Thanks for the information! I have not worked with fonant and very little with gumpaste.

Did you cover the whole figure in fonant and gumpaste before using the royal icing? Did you use the grass tip to pipe on the royal icing?

Just want to say thanks Iva1976 for all the help!

Why not use ganache to cover the RKT? Wouldn't it give you a nice firm, smooth finish to lay fondant on??

I'm making a dress form cake and the top neck/shoulders out of RKT and I was going to cover it in ganache.

I just wanted to add a tip. When I use RKT to make figures I use a thick buttercream (just add more powdered sugar to make it thick). I then just add it to my figure a little piece at a time. It is easier to smooth it out. Then I place it in the freezer for a few minutes while I roll out my fondant. Take it out spray it with a water bottle and cover it with fondant. I have done the big rubber duck on a baby shower cake, Wolverines hand, and a wine bottle. I didn't have any lumps. I hope this helps someone. I haven't updated my pictures here but if would like to see the RKT figures I did here is my website www.heavenlysweets.shutterfly.com

Mrsmudrash that makes perfect sense. I will definitly try ganache next time I make RKT. The first time I tried to make fruits I covered in bc and then fondant and they were very bumpy. I guess the ganache could be smoothed out even further with your hands. Good idea and thanks.

If you crush or put the RKT in a food processer it will give you get a smoother finish.

I need to make a 3d transformer (Bumblebee) and want to use RKT, will it hold up in outside weather? I don't want it melting or falling apart all over the place. Thanks for the help!

If you are adding a suspending piece of RKT to cake, how do you attach it so it won't fall off? I'm trying to build up a dog's face to add the snout and ears. Thanks!
