Step 6: Make the fondant and cover the pieces and detail
I set aside a little bit of the fondant and left it white for the face mask area, neck area and the little triangle and chest lights details and colored the bulk of the fondant with the gel food coloring. I used black to get the dark purple color but you could use any color you want really. I think different characters in the game have different color armor. I was going with the Noble 6 character because that is the one my nephew liked the most. I couldn't find any metallic colorings so I just went with the colors I had.
Next I rolled out the fondant and started applying it to the cakes. I used a flexible see-through ruler to measure different areas of the parts I was covering and then cut out the shapes from the rolled out fondant and put them on the cake
When applying fondant over top other fondant that was already on the cake, all you need to use is a little water to stick it to the surface of the other fondant. I would brush it on the back of the piece I was applying with a food-safe paint brush.
Also cover the buttercream-covered Rice Krispie treat shoulders with fondant.
I detailed parts that needed it as I went along; using the clay tools and my fingers.
I also added a donut shaped piece of fondant as a neck, with a hole in the middle to allow for the plastic support dowel that was in the head to go down into the torso part of the cake when I put the head on.
