I am doing a Dallas Cowboys star cake today (thanks, Inacake! icon_biggrin.gif) and am putting it on a round cakeboard covered with Wilton foil. I need to glue my gumpaste letters on the cakeboard. Will they stick if I just use water like I do on a cake or do I need to glue them down with something - gum glue or piping gel???

I us gum glue, but water or extract should work too..

Piping gel will work, too. Also, royal icing, melted chocolate and even buttercream.

Tylose glue would work very well.

would any of these methods work if I wanted to attach my letters to sanding sugar?
