Is there any special technique to adhereing candy clay pieces to buttercream?
Also, any suggestions for making a goldenrod color?
i use candy or chocolate clay on buttercream frequently.
i use smbc which does NOT crust and i just press it on and it sticks like a dream, nothing else needed (i have done with with clay ribbons, branches, cutouts...). i do this on fridged cake otherwise bc will slide around when you put your decorations on. i have never used a crusting buttercream, so if you are using this, my advice may not be applicable.
if i am putting clay on clay (like flowers on branches) i use tiny dots of royal icing, but you could also use melted chocolate.
I usually put my candy clay cut outs on the cake before the frosting begins to crust. If I put on later, I just take a little paint brush, or your finger, and moisten the clay a bit to stick it on. I've never had a problem with candy clay not sticking or falling off. Bull
Thanks for the info. I'll be giving it a try this weekend!
