So the pic I uploaded is the cake that a bride wants. No prob, but how do I get the flowers to stick on the main cake when they are big and just hanging on the side? Any pointers???

I saw Sharon Zambitos dvds last night, and she says that when she works with fondant and infact even bc....she either gets RI just a dab and puts it on back of the piece she wants to stick to the cakes and lets it dry or even melted candys....

good luck.

Chefdot, what cutter do you use to make those daisies? I have a wedding cake coming up that is covered with them, and need something better than what I have.

That almost looks like cricut! I was rebelling against the cricut thing to begin with but I'm beginning to think it might work its way into my wish list.

Although it seems like a complicated machine to me...

So royal icing or candy melts will stand up ok to stick them on fondant as well? It would seem RI would be a better idea since it wouldn't have as much of a chance for melting like the candy melts would if it were to be a little warm. Thanks guys!
Sorry I didn't respond earlier about the cut out of the flowers. I have 4 different sizes of the plunger ones that was posted earlier. icon_smile.gif

Would RI work better than water if I wanted to apply another piece of fondant to another? Such as making 2 flowers and then overlapping them like the cake above and also the middle of the daisy.

I made a cake similar to this a few weeks ago. The icing was buttercream and the flowers were fondant. I just used piping gel to adhere the stems and flowers to the buttercream. I used water or vanilla to adhere the flower petals to each other. HTH!
Here is the cake.
