Hi! I am attempting to make a tiki hut for the top of my island cake. I am using Pepperidge Farm Creme Filled Pirouette cookies for the outside of the hut. They are the long thin cookies, with the chocolate filling. They look a lot like bamboo so I thought it would be great for the hut. Peoblem is I can't get them to stick together. I tried canned icing (didn't want to make a whole batch of buttercream just for this), I let them set overnight wrapped around a round tall measuring cup to hold the shape, but when I took them off it just fell apart. The icing got hard, but didn't hold. I want to use something edible, but don't know what to try next. Any ideas??
Thanks so much!
