Hi Everyone!

Does anyone know how to get an edible image to stick to gumpaste? I've never used them before and I don't want to mess it up...

Can I just glue it to the gumpaste with a little bit of water?

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Thank you!

I know some use just a very light mist of water. I have also used a VERY thin layer of piping gel spread on the back of the image. HTH

Fine mist of water works great, but be careful whether you use water or piping gel not to get any on the top of the icing sheet or it will smear.

I've used piping gel and very small amounts of corn syrup when I'm out of piping gel.
