I have a request for a fondant covered beach theme cake and the little girl wants choc candy seashells "stuck" to the sides of the cake.
Can someone tell me what I shoudl use to attach candy shells to the side of a fondant cake?
chocolate! I did this once before, and seemed to work pretty well.
Just use melted chocolate. I used the same chocolate I used to make the shells themselves and they were not going anywhere. Very secure.
So, in other words, just take some of the melted choc, put it on the back of the shell, and then stick the shell to the side of the cake? Just want to make sure I understand.
Yup. Exactly. I used the same chocolate I used for the seashells. It dries with a very secure attachment to the cake. I did this on a cake dummy I made strictly for pictures so when I was done and went to remove the candy seashells it took a bit of force to get them off. They shouldn't go anywhere.
