When making fondant figures what do you use as the glue?? Is it corn syrup? I want to try making some and need to know thanks!

I make my gumpaste using Nic Lodges recipe with Tylose. So when I have emptied the container the tylose comes in, I put in some water and it forms glue. You can take some fondant, and pour hot water over it and let it sit over night. I do like the tylose glue better though...

i use little pieces of gumpaste with a little water,and let it sit for a little while until the gumpaste starts to "melt" into a thick liquid,then stir a little bit. works great as a glue. i keep mine in an emply bottle that use to be for cake sparkles.

I love Aine2's glue- a little bit goes a long way and it really really holds!!!

I use either a little gumpaste dissolved in water or tylose. Either one works well for me.
