i am putting edible diamonds on my daughters cake-and im not sure how to apply them. RI or gumpaste glue (water and gumpaste). if i use RI it will probably show thru. they are clear-ish.
it didnt come with instructions.

How about clear piping gel? I use that to apply all kinds of things.

the shop site i read suggests ri in the same colour as the iced cake.
i would think edible glue would be the way to go too.

I just finished a cake with 60 edible clear gems. I found royal icing to be the best glue. I used white RI to match the color the of the cake. Didn't lose a single gem in transport. icon_smile.gif
