Could anyone give me or point me in the right direction for a good tasting glue to add my decorations on my cake? Your help will be very appreciated. Thanks so much, Gloria
If you're wanting to glue fondant to fondant or fondant to buttercream, just brush a little bit of water on the back of the piece and it will stick on. You can also mix a little meringue powder and water and use that for glue.
Hi Gloria. What, exactly are you wanting to 'glue' to your cake? For example, if you're placing fondant on your cake, simply wetting the back of the fondant decoration will make it stick (ensuring not to get it too wet or it will slide out of place). So what exactly are you trying to do? This will help someone answer you..
I guess I should have said what I wanted it for.....LOL
I had made flowers and butterflies ahead of time and water isn't working....I am guessing they are too hard. They aren't flat. They kind of look like they pop out. I knew my new friends on cake central would know!!!!
Melted chocolate or candy melts; tylose glue. I use all these. Someone said meringue powder and water for glue but I haven't tried that.
Melted chocolate works great and the candy melts come in many colors.
You can use a little buttercream, or, my personal preference, melted chocolate. Yes! You can glue fondant items onto a buttercream cake with chocolate!
you can make tylose glue if you have tylose. Just a little bit of powder and water, wait about 20 min or so and you have edible glue that doesn't have a taste (if you do alot of water it will take it longer to get to a glue consistancy) you can also make fondant glue. Take about a walnut size piece of fondant and about 3 tbs of water, pick the fondant into little peasize pieces or smaller into the water. mix with a toothpick...you have to wait a bit longer for the fondant to disolve in the water usually overnight...HTH
wow....thanks for all the help....you guys are great!!!!!
