Hi Cakers!

I have used several types of edible glue. Melted Chocolate, Piping Gel, Water and Fondant/Water mix.

I have a cake tomorrow that will be iced in Buttercream only. There will be a Horizontal strip going around the 8" round cake. What type of glue can I use that will hold this fondant strip on buttercream.

I love melted chocolate, but when only a little chocolate is used at a time it hardens up quickly. I am pretty sure I will be going extra slow applying the strip to make sure it is straight.

Suggestions, Tips are appreciated! =)

if your using a crusting buttercream or if you put the cake in the refrigerator so the frosting can set up, i think the piping gel might be a good idea

99.9% of my cakes are butter cream and I use lots of fondant accents. I put the fondant directly on the cake with out any edible adhesive. It just sticks. Then when I put the cake back in the frig to set up..everything seals perfectly.
