Making a B/C iced 3 tier cake...using fondant stripes, dots, stars. What method works best to adhere them to the cake, and have them dry to the B/C fast so they don't move around?
I moisten the back of the fondant just a little.
I started using piping gel. It's great. Works just like glue and doesn't run. Good luck.
I take a paint brush dip it in water and then take a paper towel and rub it until it's amost dry and then lightly touch the back of the fondant to adhere it to the cake.
paintbrush in water. and absorb any big drops with paper towel.....................
Brush it on the back
I've used water, piping gel, & buttercream. I like water the best b/c there are no "lumps" to show through
I apply a bit of water w/ a paint brush to the back of my fondant pieces.
Hmmmm...never thought of doing water on the fondant when putting on B/C icing...will give it a try...Thanks everyone!
