My buttercream cakes are crusted and my fondant attachments are dried. What is the best way to attach them to the cake? Piping Gel? Water?

TIA.

I usually spray the back of the fondant decorations with Pam spray. Water would work too.

Thank you! These are branches and I was afraid piping gel would run but I might try your Pam trick. Thanks!

I think piping gel would end up running on you. I always use just a little dab of water and they stick all the time icon_smile.gif

I've never tried Pam...I'm afraid for something heavier than a polka dot that might not work. I always use buttercream to secure fondant decor to my cakes. On occasion I've used Royal Icing.

I too use either buttercream or royal icing to attach fondant decorations.

I use edible glue.....equal proportions of water to Wilton's meringue powder. Make sure that your bc has completely crusted.....works like magic icon_smile.gif
