What type of icing do you use prior to applying fondant. I use a crusting buttercream. Will this work? or do I need a non-crusting recipe? Also, What is the most easy and most effective way to get MMF accents to stick to MMF? Thanks for all of CC members help!!!
I use a crusting buttercream and it works fine. Many people ice it and then put it in the fridge before putting fondant on it, but I don't do that. I just wait for it to crust. I don't use MMF, but to get my fondant to stick I use vodka. It works well for me and is less messy than water, which is what I first used.
Thanks for the info! I don't have vodka, any other suggestions......
I use both gum glue (small amount of gum paste dissolved in water) or lemon extract.
so you just brush the lemon extract on like a glue. How much?
I use a clear vanilla. It has always worked awesome. Watch that you don't spread the vanilla too far or you will be able to see a difference when it dries. Also, don't use too much or it will seap around and make a messy look.
Hope that helps!
