big problem. making a tote bag cake. made a fairly large logo out of fondant/gumpaste for the front pocket of the bag. logo stuck to the cardboard cake board it was on. cracked while trying to get it off. had to leave it on the cardboard and cut it out around now it is pretty heavy with the fondant plus cardboard. how can i attach it to the cake without pulling the fondant off the cake? was going to make a large pocket for the bag and have the logo on the pocket. is there away to still do this and support the weight? appreciate help greatly!

Is this laying down or standing up?

i have had great results with melted chocolate wafers. Once the chocolate dries it holds like glue. I attach fondant/tylose items to side of my buttercream covered or fondant cakes. Wax paper or parchment are a must under items that need to dry. When removing pull on the paper to release slowly. Good luck icon_smile.gif Royal icing also works takes a little longer to dry,place toothpicks under the item to hold it in place, till completly dry.
