Okay, so I'm doing my first "Fake Cake" that I want to keep! I am making it for a display, so what should i use to adhere the fondant? I've used buttercream under the fondant on a Styrofoam base before, but it was just put in the garbage afterwards. I can't use buttercream this time or it will go bad! Any help would be great! Thanks
Sugar Syrup or Sugar Glue work well.
I've also used water before, that works just fine!
I have found a thin layer of shortening works best. Plus it makes it easier to remove the fondant and use the dummy again.
