Hi! I am using an impression mat (diamonds) on fondant for the first time and want to attach dragees to the sides. What can I use to get these to stick? Thanks!

Just pipe a tiny dot of royal icing and each dragee will stick perfectly!

I use a little "glue" that I make with a marble size piece of gumpaste and a very small amount of water. I use a very small paint brush to apply it to the dragee. Probably an easier way but I don't know of one icon_lol.gif

Well, I always have royal made up anyway, but I like your method, too!

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I hardly ever have any royal made up so I really never thought of that myself.

I usually make a small circular indent with the end of a paintbrush, brush a dab of water in the indent, and stick'em right in... works like a charm for me. icon_wink.gif

Water, RI, a dab of piping gel, even Karo...anything edible that will hold 'em in place! HTH!

I use melted white candy melts. Melt in a little bowl and just dip a little of the dragee. Too lazy to make royal icing.
