I looked on CC for a gumpaste glue and didn’t find one. So I decided to post the one I found in case someone else found themselves in the same predicament.


  • 1 Tbl Meringue powder


      In a very small container mix meringue powder and water. It will have a thin consistency. (I added more meringue because I wanted it thicker)
      Pull off pieces of ready made gumpaste and let it sit in the water for 30 minutes or until gumpaste is softened or dissolved.

I use VERY hot water to put mine in. and then I keep the container, with whatever is left and I just add to it as I need it. I do the gumpaste/water one.

What can you use to glue fondant pieces to a buttercream iced cake?

It should also probably be noted that unused glue should be stored in the fridge when not in use and it is possible for it to go rank. I use the hot water/gumpaste method for all of mine and it only lasts about a week and a half to two weeks before smelling foul.
