I'm working on my first fondant cake this weekend...a Brewer's baseball cap. Thanks to many on this site, I have completed the brim in gumpaste and crumb coated my cake to be carved (which I plan to cover in fondant), but could someone tell me what I use to apply the 'gumpaste' logo to the fondant covered hat? Piping gel? like I said it's my first fondant cake, help is appreciated! Thanks in advance! Beth

water, edible glue, piping gel, whatever really - you could use bc, chocolate or royal as well.

gum glue, sometimes water will work, piping gel, or royal icing

This is off topic and I may be reading this wrong, but didn't you say that you crumb coated your cake before you carved it?? That sounds backwards to me.. icon_confused.gif

Yes, I would have carved and then crumbcoat.

oops! live and learn I guess. Hopefully I'll still be able to carve it ok? I'm not too concerned, hopefully it's not going to be too complicated to shape...I just have to domb it like a cap? we'll see.

i belive some people do crumb coat then carve, i have seen it before. but i would agree, it makes more sense to crumb coat after, but as long as it works!
