What do you use to attach fondant accents onto fondant icing? Is royal icing the best practice or is there another source you like better?
Thanks for sharing.
Fresh fondant accent to fresh or dry fondant--I use water.
Dried fondant accent to dry fondant--I use gum glue (fondant, gum paste, gum tex, or tylose dissolved in some water) 90% of the time, royal icing the rest of the time (usually for design reasons).
Thanks alot. My accents wll be dried hard. I plan to cover my cakes with fondant saturday morning. The wedding is at 5pm. I done very little fondant covered cakes. I don't want the fondant to harden before it is served. The cakes will be iced with b/c and then covered with fondant, will the fondant stay fairly soft for that amount of time?
I brush a little vodka on the back on the fondant piece; vodka will evaporate wit no tell-tale signs. I've never had an issue doing this. Good luck!
I actually have attached dry fondant pieces to fresh fondant with SMBC. Or depending on what it is, fresh to fresh with nothing. Never had a problem with either so far. I also do the RI & water if it's a piece that is on top or something.
The accent are about 3inch tall hollow hearts. They are just the outline of a heart. I will be attaching them to the front of the cake. I just want to make sure that they are going to stay put, if you know what I mean. The venue is outside and in in Florida, so I hope the heat and/or rain doesn't make it a disaster.
