First Rice Crispy Treat Cake... HELP PLEASE

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I was asked by a friend for a rice crispy treat cake for someone that doesn't eat gluten.

I press the rice crispy treats in two 6in pans. I was thinking of using white chocolate to hold the layers together. Should I do this or could I just use buttercream? Also, I am covering it in fondant. Show I do a base coat of buttercream?

Anyone with experience in this area would be a great help.

Thanks!

Either filling should work.

Definitely do a base layer of bc so your fondant will be smooth

Yes, putting the two tiers together with white chocolate will hold them together tightly. Also you must cover them in buttercream because RK forms little bumps and crevases that only a very thick coating of fondant will hide. Some decorators break up the RK's by squishing really hard into the form to minimize all the bumps.
