Okay, I don't usually use cake dummies, but I am doing a big BD cake for this weekend and have to use a square 20" dummy for the bottom. Sides of the cake are a fondant / gumpaste mix and will be dried before they are placed on the cake. What is the best "glue" to use? I planned on piping gel, but I am not sure that will give me the best hold.
I am not overly concerned about the pieces sticking to the other 2 layers which will be real cake, but the size and weight of the fondant pieces for the "Big Dummy" are making me a little anxious.
Does anyone have some advise they could share??
Thanks so much,
If they're not too big you might try Royal icing. Or even buttercream.
You can also use melted chocolate.
Also you will put a skewer down thru the middle, right? That will hold the cakes in place as well. I agree with the melted chocolate
If you use the melted chocolate - make sure the cake is not in the sunlight - it will cause the chocolate to soften/melt.
Great!! I hadn't thought about the chocolate. Maybe a combination of Royal and chocolate...... You know, there is safety in numbers!!!
Thanks a bunch,
