I need to attach a fairly heave piece of fondant to another piece. Both pieces are dry and it will go on the side of the cake. Should I use frosting or vodka to attach?

Thanks!!

Water...fondant glue (fondant mixed with a smidge of water)...Royal Icing...all work for me.

BC frosting with a heavy piece of fondant would just slide, I think.

I've never tried vodka.

Sorrry I can't be of more help!

Good luck! icon_smile.gif

You can't stick dry to dry using gum glue, water, or vodka.

You'll probably have best results with candy melts/chocolate because it will set almost instantly.

Water always works for light fondant pieces but if it's a heavy piece usually I'll use water plus stick a toothpick or two to secure the heavy piece into the cake. I hate using sharp objects in cakes but better than having the heavy fondant piece fall off as long as you warn the cake eaters in advance that the toothpicks are thereicon_smile.gif
