I'm going to be making a gumpaste Tardis to go on top of a cake. I've found a cardboard box (it was for drinking straws) that I'll use as a support. Should I use piping gel or royal icing to adhere the gumpaste to the cardboard? Is one better than the other, or is something else better to use? Thanks!

I make glue using Tylose Powder. It's strength is second to none when you need to glue gumpaste or fondant. You can also take a wad of your already made white gumpaste, add water and let it melt; basically achieving the same goal.

Do you just add water to the tylose powder? I happen to have that on hand too.

yes, just a little water added to your tylose powder will instantly make a pasty gel that should be perfect to glue your gumpaste to your box support.
