I'm wanting to make a plaque to stand on the top of a cake. I've got a Justin Bieber edible image that I want to put on it. Do I do it before the fondant/gumpaste drys or after? and then which is better to use, fondant or gumpaste? These probably are stupid questions but I'm fairly new to working with both.
If you want it completly rigid, I would either use straight gumpaste or at the least 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mix. Cut the plaque to the shape you want it, rub the top of it with a damp towel, and apply you image and then let it dry.
Thanks a bunch
I use clear piping gel.It is not watery and won't soak the image and still acts like glue.
One more question for you wonderfull people, I'm going to be doing the plaque tonight. Once I cut it out and apply the image... what do I dry it on? parchment, wax paper, cake board?
I use wax paper.
