what ever you are trying to stick need to be properly suported - like with bubble wrap, or clingfilm, something soft. and it will take time. humidity will make it take longer.
you might want to add some internal support, like spaghetti or cocktail stick.
not tried tylose glue, but it is supposed to be good. you could try dissolving a bit fondant or gumpaste with hot water, that also makes an edible glue. wich ever you use, you do only need a little bit.
hope something in there helps!

Thanks for the reply. I'm in Houston so maybe the humidity is the problem. I'm going to let what I stuck together dry overnight and reassess in the morning. Thanks again!
