Can someone help me? Im new to this, what do i use when i want to stick fondant accents on the fondant covered cake?
I hear people talk of glue in their videos but they dont say what they use. Is it water, glucose what is it i need help please!
You can use a little bit of water or you can use a bit of meringue powder mixed with water. Either one will work.
Hi caramelchef! First, welcome to cake central
Second - here is a link for you that will help you understand some of the abbreviations that people use:
Finally - the answer you've been waiting for.... you can use a small bit of water or alcohol based liquid (vodka or extract) to adhere small fondant decorations onto fondant surface. The glue's mentioned *I think* are used for modelling gumpaste figures and it is a thinned out (with water) gumpaste or gumtex mixed thin with water. HTH
I work with MMF and water works great for me!!!
Thank u cupcakemkr for the full list and thanks everybody i really needed to kno
Depending on what you have on hand, you can also use a little bit of piping gel. Works great.
The glue we were taught to make in the Fondant and Gumpaste class was made of some gumpaste dissolved into water. It does depend, though, what you are sticking the fondant accents onto. When I stick then onto buttercream, I find a light brush of water on the back of the accent piece is enoug. When sticking fondant to fondant or gumpaste to fondant, etc., I've had more success with the glue.
water is all you need!
