I'm making a cake that looks like western jeans. I saw several pictures on here that I liked. They have a fondant belt going around them with a buckle on it and belt loops. The belt looks so heavy I'm afraid that the weight will eventually pull it down. Has anyone made this before? How can I assure that it won't fall? Oh, btw, I'm not covering the cake with fondant. I'm using buttercream to cover it and fondant for the belt and buckle. Thanks!
Shouldn't be a problem.
Do I just put water on it to stick it or something else? I normally use water and it is fine but I have had things start to slide a little and they were much smaller. (I'm new at the fondant stuff.)
If your buttercream has crusted just put a thin layer of fresh buttercream on the back of the belt. If it hasn't crusted it should hold as is.
I've used melted chocolate to glue heavy items to bc. Works great and dries fast. Royal icing works too, but it doesn't dry fast enough, IMO.
Okay, thanks! I've never used melted chocolate. What kind do you get?
I just use candy melts.
Thanks for all of your advice! I ended up just using buttercream and it worked fine, but I split the belt in half and it was covered by the belt loops and buckle. That way it was a little easier to work with. Thanks!
