either Butter cream iced cake or fondant covered...I am not sure which one...I am icing right now....
I have used water and brush to the flat ones but never used fondant one that were raised...they are flower that I put in a egg carton to hold there shape...
Thanks so much
How about a tooth pick!!
To attach things to a cake I use anything from a palette knife to tweezers to paint erasers (yes, you heard me right!) and toothpicks and glue it all with piping gel.
Here's a link to the paint erasers I use: http://www.plaidonline.com/productDetail.asp?itemID=1368&productName=FolkArt+%AE+One+Stroke%99+Accessories&Cat1ID=&Cat2ID=&Cat3ID=&brandID=&keywords=&New=False&Closeout=False&HotDeal=False&page=1
They are little rubber tips on the end of a handle but they are glorious when it comes to fondant work!
I was talking about to glue it on...I can pick them up..they are not small but not real small...I just dont think water will do...I have very little butter cream left will that work???
BC will not help it 'stick' very well, water is the best. I have also tried corn syrup, but that tends to run and not hold as well as water. BC did not work for me.
hope that helps!
So just water will hold a pc of MMF flower to a cake...Ijust hope its not to heavy....cuz they are not flat..they stick out a bit..
will vanilla (clear) work the same???
I use only vanilla or gum glue.
For sticking fondant to fondant, I use either water with a little CMC (1/2 c. water to 1/4 tsp. CMC; shake together and leave in fridge for several hours or overnight). If the pieces are dry, royal icing works like a charm. I don't know anything about sticking fondant to buttercream, which is unfortunate, because I have a buttercream-iced cake with fondant decorations to do in just five days. I'd appreciate any help along these lines, too.
Edited once because I got the CMC recipe wrong. See my signature box for the explanation.
Glue it with piping gel. Works like a charm.
I've used water and gum glue. If I don't have time to make gum glue out of pieces of gumpaste and water, I just mix some Gum-tex powder (like Tylose powder) with water until I get the glue consistency I want, and then use that. No waiting for gumpaste bits to dissolve.
I use RI to attach decorations to my cakes
