Ok, so I'm doing a giant grad cap and I asked how people did it, so I opted to cover some cardboard in fondant - WELL - how the heck is the fondant sticking to the board??? Did you fold it underneath and it stuck??

Maybe I'll just add some gumtex, skip the cardboard and pray it dries hard enough by tomorrow to work as a grad hat??

Any thoughts??

Can you add gumtex and then try sticking it to the cardboard with piping gel? Might work.

even just a spritz of water will work.
