I googled, and found one recipe that says to brush the marzipan lightly with water, which will "glue" the fondant on. Another recipe says egg whites.

I don't like using water.... have actually had liquid ooze out of bottom of cake from beneath fondant, even with a very light brushing with water. I prefer to use thinned down ( and sieved) apricot jam.... or slightly thinned corn syrup in a pinch. I've also heard that some folks used a little piping gel.

Just what works best for me icon_smile.gif

Hi! Traditionally it's an apricot glaze (using jam)
