HI:

IT'S ME AGAIN. I THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTION. I HAVE ANOTHER CHALLENGE. HOW DO I MAKE THE COVER OF THE CAKE BOX TILT TO THE SIDE OF THE BOX CAKE. THANKS IN ADVANCE. ATTACHED IS A PICTURE OF A CAKE WITH THE TOP OF THE COVER TILTED TO THE SIDE. THAT IS WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO ACCOMPLISH.

NEWBIE.

Looks like its a separate piece, maybe styrofoam,

I made one and I used Styrofoam, and glued the fondant with corn syrup or also shortening. Make sure to have edges (you can sand it) really straight and fondant a little bit thicker than you normally will work with. Or another good option is working with RKT, it will be all edible

I have never used this board....how do I use it when stacking a wedding cake? Can the cake sit on this board?

Sorry to jump in , but do you think that cornsyrup would hold a heel on a shoe good enough for support?? Im going to attach the heel tonight to the shoe part and was worried that just water wouldnt hold , i have RI i could use but i hate mixing it>
Thanks

what you can do is simple get a little piece of gum paste, like the one you used to make the own shoe, ct it in tiny little pieces, and put just a few drops of water, then melt the gum paste plus water in the microway (i put it on those little containers where the petal dust come) when the gum paste is melted then is ready to be used as edible glue.
