I'm making a cake to be delivered in the morning and I made chocolate letters and need to attach them to the cake but the icing crusted over. Are there any techniques to do this?! Please help quick!

I'd brush a little buttercream to the back of the letters and apply them to the cake. They should stick just fine and you should be able to do this using very little icing.

Thank you SO much. I hope it works. My chocolate buttercream is pretty dry. I guess I need to water it down a bit?

Yeah, I would thin it out some to use for "glue". I see that you are in Alaska. I was there last year, my son lives in Fairbanks.

Oh cool! icon_smile.gif I like fairbanks! (in the summer) haha. Ok, so the icing worked for the letters. Finished with the cake. Now I'm just worried about the cake not being good enough. I'm such a newbie. lol
