After inspiration from many of you -- I made some quilled flowers. FUN!! I made out of fondant/ gumpaste and let them dry for about 28 hrs. Now I have to attach to cake covered in fondant and am scared will they be to heavy, do they need support, how do I attach??
Thank you for all of your mentoring and inspiration.
I attach all fondant appliques with piping gel. It's sticky and things don't slide.
I found that my quilled flowers were heavy. Not too fragile once they were dry.
But, my usual tylose glue did not work. For some of the smaller pieces, I made up a little royal icing and used that.
For the really big pieces, I moistened a small circle of gumpaste (both sides) with the tylose glue, and placed it on the cake and then placed the ready flower on it and pressed lightly. It stayed fine.
In fact, you can actually see it (my bad! I wasn't neat enough) in the top tier of my cake (pink cake in my photos)
thank you -- sorry for silly question, but what is tylose?
Melted chocolate would also work. That's what sugarshack attaches her bows with.
Here's an old post.
