Does anyone know how to make cigarillos stick to a cake. I tried attaching buttercream to the sticks with a spatula, it turned out messy. When I look at pics of cakes with cigarillos, I don't see how they are attached. I have a wedding on the 18th and the grooms cake is going to be three tiered with the cigarillos. Help anyone!

Usually I just push them slightly into the cake's icing, one by one (while wearing gloves so the chocolate doesn't melt in my hands). Are you doing it on the sides or top of the cake? If you use crusting buttercream, you will need to put the sticks against the buttercream before it crusts over. Is there a certain cake that you are trying to duplicate, so I can see a photo?

Maybe some more melted choc or RI. Maybe do it before your BC has crusted and lightly push them in....

yes....I am trying to duplicate a three tiered I saw on website. Maybe I will do a dry run on a six inch cake and try to attach them before the icing crust as you have suggested.
