I am doing a 3 tier mmf fondant covered cake and have made the gumpaste blossoms. I am concerned that the flowers might fall of if I use buttercream, any suggestions? ? This is a tent wedding and it has been very wet lately.

Use melted chocolate to glue it to the fondant or royal icing, either one will work but the chocolate will set up quicker I think.

If you mix tylose with some water until it disolves, it makes a great glue for fondant/gumpaste items.

Make a little wet paste with meringue powder a tad of water, works great!

I usually use water or mix a some fondant with water, it becomes a glue for fondant, however, I took a class with Geraldine Randlesome and I asked her how she glues fondant deco in to cake and she said she uses white chocolate because it dries faster. Good luck

I think chocolate works best with your situation.

I decided to go with the royal icing. It was very humid in the tent I hope it held up. Waiting to hear.....
