Its funny you guys suggested Pastillage. I emailed Diane Shavkin a day or so ago (I didn't think she would reply, though, isn't she famous? I thought she may be too busy...she was VERY sweet). But this is the technique she suggested. She said to leave out the glucose. I wonder why? I am very new to the gumpaste medium and heard of pastillage once or twice....but never really knew what it was. She said there is a recipe for it on her site, I am going to check it out, but not for this project. It's just too late to start anything new. Cake is due tomorrow.
I do have an additional question that i am about to try out. Just thought i would ask. I haven't put arms on my little football players yet. Is it too late? Could they be glued on with the royal glue? I can't really stick anything in the players now, cause it would crack the fondant. Or do they need arms at all?
I truly appreciate all the wonderful ideas and suggestions you all have given me! I don't know what I would do without ya'll!!!
Thank you all!!!
