I am making a castle cake. It is a dummy cake. I am making some royal icing accents to put on the cake. Can I use royal icing to attach the mmf towers to the mmf covered cake? I have only used royal icing twice, so I don't know what all I can do with it. Would the royal icing hold better than buttercream? TIA

Hi, yes I would definitely use Royal Icing to attach the towers. Are you doing them with MMF alone or are you adding some tylose to it?

I had some powder called gumpaste mix or gum-tex, I can't remember. I added some of that.

I use Royal when I want the "best glue of all" to hold something.

I totally agree with Sweetcakes23. RI rocks! Plus, those darn towers keep falling over if you don't "glue" them down to your cakeboard.
