Rice krispie/ sculpting

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Rice krispie is the british name for the product, but does anyone know how to make rice krispies stick together so you have a solid foundation to build on vertical cake or so you can sculp on it, I have seen this being used on various cake decoration show but have never seen how it is made, I suspect some kind of glucose or glycerine.

Any help please welcome

I need this a.s.a.p.

Thanks

They are made with marshmallow and butter.

Not sure if your familiar with rice krispie treats, but its a mixture of melted marshmallows, vanilla & margarine (or butter), & then add rice krispies.
If you are just going to sculpt with this then I suggest to melt your marshmallows (desired amount) no real recipe to this then add enough rice krispies so that when you squeeze mixture in your hands it will hold its shape.
I don't add margarine to the mixture if I'm only using it to sculpt with & vanilla can be omitted as well however I add about 1 tsp. to my mix.
Some people crush the rice krispies up before adding it to the melted marshmallows so you get a smoother appearance from the moulded mixture.
Hope that helps. thumbs_up.gif

You can also mix in melted white chocolate to the treats- it keeps the sculpted piece firm.
If you can't be good- be good at it.

I have blended the cereal first, then add the marshmallows. It worked very well. The only disadvantage is you end up with less to work with, but it does leave a smooth finish. I have also seen on here that mixing the RKT with modeling chocolate makes it really easy to work with. I haven't tried this yet but if I was sculpting a difficult cake, I would probably try this method.
