In this post I am going to teach you how to make rkt, how to shape it with a cup and also how to decorate it to make this Christmas penguin. If you don’t want to do it in rkt, you can do it as a figure. I encourage you to do it, it is very easy.
Christmas Rkt Penguin
Rkt or rice krispie treats is a mixture of krispie rice with marshmallow. In some countries it is consumed as a “dessert”.
It is also used to create large and light structures or figures, since due to its ingredients it is not heavy and it is possible to use it for that purpose.
To make rkt you will need:
- 1 part marshmallow
- 2 parts of puffed rice
- Non-stick spray
In this case, I am going to teach you how to shape it with a cup, but you can not use it or use another container. For a cup I have used these amounts (it will depend on the size of your cup or container):
- 50 gr of marshmallow
- 100 gr of krispie rice
Here is the video to see how to do it.
Step by step:
- Cut out a circle of baking paper the size of your cup. Spray the cup and place the circle.
- Spray in a bowl and add the marshmallows. Heat in the microwave in 10-second heat strokes, to avoid burning. They should soften.
- When they are soft, add the rice and start mixing. Be careful, it’s very hot.
4. Put it into a cup to cool there and take the shape.
5. When cool, take it out.
As you can see, it is very easy to make. Now, let’s move on to decorate it. In the video you can see the step by step.
And in this video I show you how to decorate it. You will need (the amounts depend on the size of your penguin):
- White fondant
- Black fondant
- Cake Smoother
- Orange fondant
- Pink fondant
- Dresden tool
- Red fondant
- White fondant
