I'm sure the answer is in here somewhere...I am making a wedding cake next week(fondant quilt with silver dragees). What is the best way to adhere Silver dragees to the fondant without the silver coating "bleeding"?
thanks!! Lee

I use a little water in the spot where you are putting it, then place it on the cake using tweezers. Never had a problem with bleeding.

Water like PP, or piping gel. It stays wet longer than water so literally I can put a little on all the spots I need dragees and then start applying them. I find when I so water I can only do a few at a time. I'm not a patient person LOL
