I don't have time to order anything and I don't have any cake decorating stores nearby. That being said, what would be the best glue to hold 3D pieces together. I am making monkeys so there will be several pieces. I don't really want to use raw egg white since there will be several young children at the party and a monkey might get "sampled". Thanks!
if the pieces are small enough you could use a bit of hard alcohol ie, whiskey, rum etc... to dab on the pieces and that will usually hold them. Just make sure they have a temporary support if needed, until they set. You could also try lemon flavoring, it has a lot of alcohol in it. I've also mixed a small bit of fondant in with the alcohol to make a thick paste and then used that. Hope this helps.
a little bit of tylose and warm water mixed together makes a good glue. Check out aine2 on youtube for exact amounts!
Thank you for these replys. Unfortunately I waited too long to order tylose which is what I should have done. The alcohol mixed with a little fondant seems like a good idea. The glue should dry fast using alcohol and help avoid pieces sliding/falling off. I plan to use toothpicks for support where possible too. Thanks again!
I take hard, leftover pieces of fondant and/or gum paste and put them in hot water just enough to cover them. I stir until they are somewhat dissolved and then just leave them in the bottom of the cup. I find that this is a cheap, quick, easy glue for fondant or gum paste figures.
