Doing a special cake for a friend and have never used nonedible cake jewelry on cakes before. I have a yard of "diamonds" to place around the center of the fake dividing tier and have no idea how to get it to stick....the fake tier is covered in black fondant so can I use black BC? Gum glue? I don't have any RI (rarely use it) but can get some if I really need it.
Any who experience in this?
If you have a scrap of fondant left over, you can try using the gum glue for practice. It should work.
Royal icing works really well for this.
If the trim is going onto the fake tier use a couple of straight pins in the back to hold it in place. If this doesn't hold the trin tightly enough against the tier use a few more pins. I do it this way all of the time. Works great and the pin fades into the trim.
