So if I shape the branches and flowers out of fondant, how do I apply them to the cake that is iced with buttercream? Will it just stick if I press them on the sides? What happens if the buttercream has already crusted over?


I just found this pick online to serve as an example for all my questions this week:

you can use royal icing as your glue

Thank you so much for replying. Is there any other suggestions out there? I haven't made royal icing for so long and would preffer not to have to make another batch of something that will go to waste.

Anyone please?

If the branches wouldn't stick to the crusted buttercream, try to attach it with small dots of buttercream. That would save you the time of making RI, which I'm not sure it would dry on buttercream. (I haven't tried it, only on fondant).

I would try using buttercream as well.
And there are no silly questions here. So there!

ok, thanks so much. icon_smile.gif I was going to make the flowers so that they can dry. It did not even register to make the branches early to dry too. icon_redface.gif Sometimes I just have to shake my head at myself. When I had my girls I knew that I would love them with all my heart, but no one told me I would loose half my brain. icon_cry.gificon_surprised.gificon_cry.gif . I guess I came out ahead anyways so thumbs_up.gif
