i use a mixture of about 1/2-1 teaspoon of Tylose powder to 2 Tablespoon of Warm water...mix well, it might still have some tiny white lumps its okay though, just leave in the fridge for a couple of hours n it will become a clear gooey liquid...

It's called edible glue by many...
oh, sometime people just use some water to wet the area needed to stick piece together

those cutters are really easy to use, I agree just make some edible glue to stick them together, if you don't have tylose, take a small amount of the gumpaste you are using and dissolve that is warm water.

Tips for the shoes, if you have a pasta machine dig it out, so that you can roll the paste to a uniform size, it makes for nice looking matching shoes. Or use those little rubber spacer things that some of the rollers come with now.

Roll the sole of the shoe as thick as you can, and use a little dusted cotton balls to help form the shoe.

I find it easier to make the sole a couple days in advance so it's dry and gives you something 'substantial' to glue the other parts to. For your first time, you might want to finish them up a week in advance. It's also nice to add some texture to the top pieces. When it's all dry, they look so pretty w/some pearl dusted on.

I just use water to stick them together and have never had any problems.

I have not had a problem just using water as my glue. I would suggest doing them a few days before time so you won't have to rush through them. Each one takes a little time; and also you really get to focus on intricate details.
