I watched an instructional video for making a fondant bear and the decorator said to brush an adhesive onto the pieces. I'm a newbie to working with fondant, and I usually use water, but that doesn't always hold well. I have a baby shower cake that is going to reqire some fondant gluing and I'd like some advice on the best methods......any takers?
Sugar glue. The exact recipe is in the forum. It's just tylose powder and water. Works great !
I have used many different things.....depending on what I'm doing.
Sometimes I use piping gel, RI, or chocolate melts.
Hope that gives you a start.
Try a piece of fondant with a little water to make your glue.
In my cake class the instructor told us to use clear vanilla extract. Works great.
In the past i've used royal icing, buttercream icing, or water....
A pea sized ball of gum paste dissolved it 1 Tbsp. water. Takes 1/2 hour or so to completely dissolve, but works like super glue!
You can disolve a small piece of fondant in water and use it as glue also
Gumpaste and water as millermom said.
Thank you for your quick replies...I will try and send a report!
Been kinda curious of the same thing. And not to hijack the thread, but on the same subject...
What is in the can that you see people use like on Food Network Challenges? Is that just an air can or something specific?
You see them using that to make there stuff stick, at least I thought so. I guess now that I think about it, maybe they are trying to make their "glue" dry faster?
