I would guess brushing it with some piping gel, but here's a bump in case someone has a better idea. icon_smile.gif

I usually use modelling chocolate on pvc to get the shape I want and then cover with fondant. I just spritz on a little water. If you are putting the fondant right onto the pipe, I would think a spritz of water would work too.

you might try corn syrup, brush it on with a paint brush and I would think it would stick.

A little water goes a long way too, but I find water works best for me to adher fondant to cake, dowels, etc. Just remember to use a little water to make it stick and if it doesn't, try a little more water. Too much water can also make things you're trying to stick on the side of your cake slide downwards. Water will also effect your drying time so allow time for your items to dry... Good luck and let us know if it works for you icon_smile.gif

I would mist with water water makes it adhere real good, once on won't come off real easy.
