You can use a mixture of corn syrup and water or straight water or a bit of piping gel watered down....HTH

My WMI told us to use a thin layer of piping gel. Seemed to work just fine.

I use a foamcore board that hasn't been covered with anything else (no plastic wrap, foil, etc) and just roll the fondant directly onto the board. It sticks well enough that there is no way to remove it.

I use a smear of shortening, but piping gel, corn syrup or even plain old water will work fine.

I have had them to stick without using anything, however, I have used plain water and thinned piping gel on other occasions.

I have used Hersheys caramel ice cream topping, I had leftover, didn't like the taste, and need something to stick the fondant to the dummie cakes and boards
So I used it.

Can the fondant ever be removed so the boards are reusable? Or are Foamcore boards basically just one time use items?

This week I had to remove the fondant from wood, it had been sitting for 6 months, and it peeled off really easy.
I don't know about foamcore or styrofoam. I haven't had a need to peel them off yet

Maybe somebody else out there can tell us.

I guess if you wanted to reuse foamcore, you could wrap it in plastic wrap before you put the fondant on, but I don't know if that would make it harder to glue a ribbon on.

The other alternative is to stock up when foamcore is on sale and then you don't have to worry about getting your boards back and trying to reuse them icon_biggrin.gif
