So I have a cake next month that will require me to make some shoes. I was thinking about making the shoes out of rice krispy treats. These shoes will be covered with fondant, I have seen many on the internet that are all bumpy. Can this be prevented by covering with a thin coat of icing first then applying the fondant?? Anyone with experience willing to share?

A coat of BC will help. Get enough on to fill in all the nooks and crannies and even out the surface.

I used a double layer of fondant on my mic. It added more weight and helped cover the bumps somewhat. I need more practice

Hi! I run mine through the food processor. Mix them as usual then if there is a little bump or two I have a very fine hand held food grater that I use for a "sander". This works great and results in a nice smooth finish.
