I made a cake and used gum glue to stick fondant letters on and I got a small yet noticable gum glue mark on the fondant covering the cake. Is there any way to get rid of it?

I would try removing it with alcohol. Try on a separte piece first just to make sure.

I moisten a small paint brush with water and brush the mark away, repeat if necessary. Start with very little water.

I would use alcohol. Last week, I accidentially brushed gum glue on my fondant instead of alcohol. I was able to get out the traces with alcohol.

I think alcohol is your best bet, too.

I've also used vanilla.
