Hi everyone!
I am making a very elaborate cake and I need a little help. I am going to use terracotta tile on my cake board. I am pretty certain that the customer wants to be able to use the tile after the cake is gone. Now, The back of these tile are gloss or anything. They will not be touching the cake at all. So how do I attach them so that they do not fall off and can be reused?

I appreciate the help!

depending on the detail, why don't you make them out of fondant?

and maybe hot glue? sticks well and can be peeled off?

i attached a brick board i did so you can see, grout is RI and let it sit for like a week to get really hard.

Ohhhhh I WISH I could make them out of fondant but I don't have enough time. These are the tiles:

Hot glue...DUH..That would definitely work!

Thank you!!

I'd use them if I could but I don't have a printer yet.

I'd say royal icing. It would wash off. I don't think glue would.

I second the hot glue. Sticks well but you will be able to peel the tiles off afterwards.

im hoping and assuming your board will be square!

I don't have a printer yet, fortunately my cake supply store sells them I think its about $10 for an 8*10. Also I know online places sell, but I don't know there quality icon_biggrin.gif

the better quality image you have the better you have a chance of it coming out icon_biggrin.gif
