I'm doing a cake that will have some large fondant pieces. The cake will be frosted using sugar shacks method. Sometimes when I've attached smaller pieces they'll fall off. What method do you use to attach pieces to your cake?
I brush a little piping gel on the back of fondant accents on BC and that has always worked fine for me. I've heard of other people using just a little water as well.
I just dampen with a little water. I use a tiny paint brush and dip it in water. I also have a "water pen" that I use. It holds water and you just squeeze it a little until the water comes out.
Seems to work fine. And most of my cakes have fondant on them.
On my Glasgow Rangers cake, I just did a light brush with water and pressed the letters into the BC. They stayed on perfectly, especially for being on the side of the cake.
