I'm doing a demo cake <stryro> and didnt want to hassle with BC or Chocolate... will a hot glue gun work for gluing fondant decorations to the side of the cake?
I can use gum glue... but i figured a HGG would be faster.
Can't you use water? Isn't the styrofoam going to be covered with fondant?
I need to stick dried gumpaste/ fondant to the side of a fondant covered "cake"
I dont think just water will hold them...i have a good drive to make so i figured since its not being eaten...why not make extra sure nothing falls apart on travel
Sure you can use a hot glue gun. Just be careful not to touch the decorations if they are fragile. I put burn marks on a few of mine once...duh on me!
Water will hold fondant to fondant. The liquid causes the sugars to melt together.
Hot glue is artificial glue (and although I love my hot glue gun), it dries so fast and can't get spread thin enough quickly you'd be able to see the glue lines underneath fondant pieces.
To glue fresh to fresh, water or gum glue.
To glue dry to fresh or dry to dry, gum glue.
If you don't want to use gum glue, I'd use clear Elmer's--no melting issues.
