I want to add sanding sugar to one tier of my cake. It's going to be covered in fondant. I've seen posts that you can use piping gel or gum glue to adhere the sugar to the fondant. Which one works best?
I think the piping gel will stick better but I'm afraid it will stay sticky.
Anyone try both and have any tips as to which one works best? Oh and this cake will have to sit outside at a picnic, so will the heat and humidity be a factor?
Thanks in advance!!
For Calla Lily centers I have found that the piping gel holds the sugar on better. For me when I used it with gum glue after the glue was dry it seemed the sugars bumped off easier.
The piping gel will mostly "dry out" and won't be completely sticky under it.
Thanks!! I think I'll go with the piping gel.
I just lightly mist the cake with water. It sticks great.
