I have a small cake dummy that I need to cover in fondant - but need to know 'what' to use on the dummy to make the fondant stick to it??? What are some options? i tried covering a 6" dummy over the holidays without using anything and the sides just ripped and fell off ;(

smear it up with shortening.

First off, you want to either sand or round the edge of the dummy depending on what it is made out of. Usually just pressing the edge to the table will have soften it. Alot of times if you do have a sharp edge it will rip and tear the fondant.

As far as what to attach with, anything liquid, just used in small amounts. You can do a light spray of water, piping gel, corn syrup or even some crisco.
