I'm making a mountain cake with a train track going up around it. I am using Duff's technique of drying green RI and crushing it to add texture to my mountain and trees.

Any idea how I should "glue" it to the fondant? I can't remember what Duff used.....piping gel?

Piping gel should work great

I remember the episode, but I wish I could remember what he used...sorry! If it comes to me I will let you know, otherwise piping gel does sound great!

He usd that technioque for the Harry Potter cake and the I think the one for the broadway musical but I can't remember its name. It was the one at the same time he did the Paula Deen blue velvet guitar cake

Well.....I went downstairs to get my piping gel, and it was yellow. Like a gross looking yellow. Which isn't what it looked like when I bought it, which admittedly was a while ago. I couldn't spare the run to the store time so I used corn syrup. It's staying so far, but some of the larger chunks dislodge when you move the cake. Here's a pic, wish me luck. The father of the birthday girl is picking it up tomorrow.
