I'm making a sand and seashells cake this weekend. The cake is covered with fondant. The seashells are candy made from candy molds. How do I attach them so they stay in place? My first thought was a dab to use a few drops of the melted candy on the back side and stick them to the fondant. I know I'm probably overthinking this.......
No, you're not over thinking. Melted choc or royal icing. You're choice.
I've done this before (pic in my gallery), just used a dab of royal icing and it held the shells fine.
I broke a toothpick in half and stuck the sharp end into the shell and then poked the other end into the cake. I found royal wasn't enough to hold my shells up. Hth
I'm with gscout73, melted chocolate
In general, is one kind of melted chocolate stronger than another? Dark, Milk, White?
It seems like Dark would be, but I have no idea.
I have not found one to be "stronger" than another. Thickness of the item is more of a factor. Not related to consitency, but rather thickness as in diameter.
