What is the best way to stick fondant pieces to bc? Little water on the back of the fondant pieces when sticking to fondant but what about sticking to bc? icon_confused.gif

I usually stick them to buttercream the same way as I do to fondant. Maybe just a little less water though. Actually, what I normally do for either type of frosting.... is get a damp towel, lay it on the counter & let the cut outs sit on it for a moment to get damp. Then I pick them up & put them onto the cake. That way, there is just a small amount of water on each one. It also skips the step of having to brush water onto each piece individually. HTH!

O.K. that sounds like a good idea but, do they ever stick to the towel or stretch out of shape. I'm going to have to try this. thumbs_up.gif

Anyone else?

Just slap the fondant pieces onto the bc before it crusts. No problem.

I agree....a little bit of water works fine. Also a little bit of piping gel works as well.

If you are waiting to smooth your butter cream after it crusts, than a dab of water will do.
