Sorry if this has been answered. I did a search and didn't see anything. I'm making a cake with piping gel on the sides. I want the lettering stuck across the side. I would think the letters would stick to the fresh gel but would the fondant be too heavy? I am worried they won't stay centered and slide to the bottom. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Could you attach them with some spaghetti stuck into the cake?

Thank you Poohsmomma. I'll probably do that to be on the safe side. Would I stick a little ball of fondant to the back of the letter and stick the spaghetti in it right?

Or allow the piping gel to be almost dry, so its very sticky,then attach your letters.

Solascakes- that's a good idea also. I am thinking if I apply it thinner than the top (this will be 'water' on a beach themed cake) it will dry quickly but I'll still put it on spaghetti to be on the safe side. In my head it looks great as long as everything goes right lol.
