I am planning a birthday cake in which I will apply fondant cutouts. The cake will be iced with buttercream. My question is what do I need to use as glue in order for the fondant to stick to the buttercream?

You can use BC or royal.

I use buttercream only because I don't usually have a batch of royal icing lying around so it's easier for me, but I know both work great.
Good Luck! icon_smile.gif

It usually will just stick right to the buttercream (like dots, stripes that sort of thing)

Regular buttercream, royal icing, or just water will all work fine. I usually just put a dab of buttercream and have never had a problem with anything falling off.

How do you make modeling clay out of chocolate melting candy (wilton type for moulding) I saw on somebody sight how to make & use it for Roses. I'm not good with fondant. My Daughter uses it. I help her.

I use vanilla or water down fondant and paint on and stick just like glue.
