Okay, so I just want to make sure I did this right. I am doing the wooden duck tub cake and I made my "wooden" slats last night. I added Tylose to them so that they would harden and they aren't quite hard yet, but I assume that's okay. I just was wondering if I put them up on the sides of the cake, how do I make sure they don't fall off? Should I put toothpicks into it? Or will they just stay stuck to the frosting?

As long as your frosting hasn't crusted, the slats should stick.

Yikes, wait till they harden, since the slats stick up beyond the top of the cake, you don't want droopy slats icon_smile.gif THat happened to me, and I had to peel them off and start over, one they are rock hard and can stand tall, glue them on with royal, it works great with fondant.
