I have an order for a wedding cake trimmed in dragees like pictured below. The cake will be covered with a crusting buttercream. I am struggling to figure out the best way to attach them. I think piping gel would mess up the buttercream - wouldn't it? Would spraying the cake lightly with a mist of water and then adding the dragees work? Suggestions?? Thank you!
I use 1/2 piping gel, 1/2 corn syrup. Lightly brush on. Run dragees through a large opening funnel to direct to the places you want them (helps get them into the small edges). .
I love the idea of running the dragees through a funnel! Great tip! :)
ty...:) a hard lesson to learn when chasing dragees around the counters.
Hadn't thought about thinning the piping gel out with corn syrup. Cold cake, gel mixture, and funnel should make this an easy do now. Thank you johnson6ofus!
The funnel idea is genius! Love it!
