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.
i,ve wet my dummie cakes for 13 years with mist of water... love how they look... people also use piping gel..... some use crisco... the ones that use crisco.... love it... i have used piping gel also at times.... mostly i spray mist of water.. hth
Why didn't you like the look? Maybe you are wetting the styro too much. 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.
