I am working on a cake that I am making the top so the mother to be can keep. I have attached wax paper to a cake board. I need it to have some height to my design. What I would like to do is attach my fondant bubbles (round balls - different sizes) to the wax paper using royal icing. I am making a tub of soap with a baby in it. The question is will royal icing stick to the wax paper? Please help for any ides???

I really don't understand exactly what you're doing, but royal icing will indeed stick to waxed paper.

Just make sure the waxy side is down and the RI will stick.

I don't know what brand of wax paper you use, but Reynold's Cut-Rite brand in the familiar blue box is the same on either side of the paper, and RI sticks well to it.

Thank you - I am making an old wooden tub with a baby and alot of bubbles. The bubbles are made out of fondant. So to add some height to the piece, I am using wax paper to give it the wave look. So I thought I would use royal icing to attche the fondant to the wax paper.

So now I know it will work. Thank you again.
