Sorry, I have another nonpariels question.
How can the nonpariels be attached to:
-fondant/gumpaste (I need to us it as a trim for a fondant wedding dress cake topper. I was thinking royal icing, but will it stick to the fondant?)
-chocolate (I need to make swirl designs on a cake truffle, but not covering the entire truffle with the nonpariels. My husband says to pipe the melted chocolate on, but I don't know how to keep if from running down to the bottom of the truffle.)
Thank you so much for your help!!
I use light corn syrup and a fine paint brush to attach nonpariels as a trim.
To pipe chocolate on a cake truffle, just chill the truffle briefly first then pipe the swirl on, it will harden quickly on the chilled truffle.
Piping gel works great too.
I used thinned piping gel - I used it on buttercream, so I know it would work on fondant. The non pareils are on the tops of the layers, the other ones are fondant pearls.
Here is the pic of the cake I used it on:
Ditto on the piping gel.
I like to lick them and then stick them on.
