How can I stick paper to fondant?!? I know it sounds weird, but it's my only option right now. I have a cake due in the morning and I cut a piece of fondant to put on the cake and I'm trying to stick a photo to that fondant and I can't get ANYTHING to stick! Please tell me someone knows of something I can do. Thank you!

Maybe make a small frame to put around the picture, that way the picture is held in place with the frame. Make the frame out of fondant to stick on the other piece of fondant. Hope that makes sense.

I use pastry gel to stick edible images to fondant. Is it a real pic? Not sure that would work. Gum glue works well too. 50/50 gumpaste to water and nuke 20 seconds or thereabouts. Mix til it forms a glue consistency--it's like edible super glue.

It's a logo printed on photo paper and then cut out along the lines. So I wouldn't be able to do a frame. It's pretty thick photo paper so I don't know if anything will work. icon_sad.gif I'm heading over to the bakery to see if they will print off an edible image for me. Thanks everyone!

The bakeries won't do it for me because its a sports logo and its copyrighted. Oh geez. The cake is due in about 2 hours and I don't know what to do! icon_sad.gif

Can you do a quick FBCT of the logo?

what did you end up using? i would of suggsted using clean corn syrup, it's extremely sticky (i often use it to glue my cakes to their cake boards) and glueing some figures appendages as well.
i would also suggest (only if the paper is thick) try chocolate melting wafers. i also use these to hold up figures on cake boards. HTH

I ended up using clear double stick mounting squares. They are working pretty good. The paper is sticking to the fondant but I can't get the edges to stick down. At this point I'm ok with how it looks. I will definitely not do a last minute cake order again!

double stick mounting squares icon_confused.gif I don't think thats a food safe thing to use. This reminds me-last year I was eating at a local pub and there was this girl selling her cakes that she did as a hobby-and she used gorilla glue to stick her cake to the board! I had a good laugh icon_lol.gif

Oh my gosh!!! Gorilla glue!?! Geez! lol. I figured the squares would be ok because they are stuck between the picture and a really thick piece of fondant and I told the customer to make sure she takes the white fondant off before eating it. So we're good. icon_smile.gif
