Can someone tell me the best way to stick fondant cut-out circles (1" and 3") on the sides of a smoothly iced buttercream cake. Thanks, Marilyn
I usually just put a sot of buttercream on the back of the fondant shape.
You can use a very thin layer of water or piping gel works great, too.
Marilyn... I just dampen the back of the fondant piece and stick it right on the crusted buttercream... works beautifully.... hth
Thanks everyone. I just wanted to make sure they don't slide off the cake. Its four tiers, and has to go around 75 miles.
Make sure your circles are rolled thin!
Almost anything will work to put the circles on but it's harder to put bc on thin enough to keep the fondant from getting bunchy or wrinkly. Water works great to make fondant sticky, but it's not so great on greasy bc.
My first choices are piping gel or gumpaste glue!
