Create a captivating confection with crispy rice treats. These treats are easier to mould than cake, allowing you to create standing structures. Fondant is an edible coating used to create a smooth surface on desserts. Covering the treats with fondant follows the same method as covering cakes with fondant. It requires an edible glue to hold the fondant in place and fill in any crevices or gaps in the cereal treats. This glue, like the fondant, is simply edible butter cream cake frosting. Look for all supplies needed from craft stores or baking supply shops.
