Hi. I am making a whimsical cake for my daughter's birthday...The first two teair will be Styrofoam. Although I have used Styrofoam in the past for shoebox lids, I wet the Styrofoam with water and, to be honest, I didn't care for how the fondant stuck to it. Do I have to use Perma Ice or can I use piping gel? I am open to suggestions. Thanks.

Why didn't you like the look? Maybe you are wetting the styro too much. It just takes a light misting.

Why didn't you like the look? Maybe you are wetting the styro too much causing the fondant to melt. It just takes a light misting.

That is exactly the reason...I think I was wetting it too much and I felt as if water was dripping out of it and it was hard for me to handle.
