Please help, I need to make a grey laptop with a lid sticking up of course, and i saw on here that i need to take foam core, cover it with grey fondant on both sides, but how is this done? What do i use to get it to stick on there?
Last time i did something like this was a flop, it was a gift box cake and i could not get the fondant to stay down on the lid sides with buttercream or piping gel?
I used piping gel on the foam core, applied the fondant and let it dry for a day before propping upright. The "screen" was actually tilted a bit, so I was concerned the back fondant could fall off at that angle. It all stayed on fine.
A light coating of piping gel will work, don't over do it or it won't stick but just slide around. Also use piping gel or water to seal the seams so the fondant sticks to itself causing a seal.
Thank you all sooo much for your responses:0) One additional thing, when i cover one side with fondant, then let it sit overnight (i assume) then flip and gover the other side? how do i get the edges covered nicely, or do i cover one side and fold ends under to the other side, let dry flip and cover the other side with a square piece?
I use corn syrup sometimes instead of piping gel, but either should help it stick
