I'll never use plain old RKTs again!!!

You're probably thinking to yourself, "what the heck, this chick's lost her mind." Well let me explain.

Here I was, minding my own business, making Pepe Le Piu. And things go south quickly. His tail is huge and it curls in a precarious arch over his body. So, I made a batch of rice crispy treats and went to work. This is where the phrase "need is the mother of all inventions" comes in.

I get it started and it's already proving to be a pain in the arse. I step away to breathe and I hear an, ever so faint, crunch... plop.

I turn to see my Pepe tail falling. AAAAAAAAAHHH
Then I think to myself, "forget this, I'm going for modeling chocolate." But it's so darn heavy and the tail is HUGE. ARG...

So I decided to do it in layers... one layer rice crispy treats and then top it with modeling chocolate to anchor it. Pretty good idea huh?

Well, it gets better....

As I'm farting along.... I see that the tip of my tail is getting too long so I grap a piece of it and tear it off... and I mush it together.

DING!!!!!

I notice that the consistency of the modeling chocolate mixed with the rice crispy treats is light and airy an still holds the general properties of modeling chocolate that I love. HOWEVER, it gets harder than the darn soggy treats and .... ok... it's just totaly awesome.

So, I went along making the tail and the head with this mixture and I'm loving it.

It's soooo easy to work with.

I'll post a pic soon.

Tell me what you think... oh and if this is something that you guys do already..just fake me out and call me awesome anyway. K
..


My ego can't handle it right now. hahahahahahaha

Yup... Just make both separately, then when the Modeling chocolate sets and you knead it... knead the two together.
