Ok. I got an order for a lovely wedding cake that was in the Wilton wedding cake book. It is on the Wilton globe bases and has small varying sizes of fondant balls all over the cake which looks beautiful but I was wondering what would be the best way to adhere them to the cake to ensure that none of them fall off? Help pleassssssse!

If the cake is fondant too, you can glue the balls on with a mix of meringue powder and water, or tylose and water or little dabs of royal icing...use a small tip, squirt a dot on a fondant ball, and then stick it on. If it's buttercream you could put them on before it crusts, or use little dabs of buttercream to stick them on.

Ok, I just did this exact thing. Balls everywhere, and I glued them on with Aine2's edible glue.
1/4 t tylose, 2 T warm water, let sit in fridge overnight.

I live in hot, humid Texas, so I couldn't use candy melts this time of year. Worked like a charm! icon_wink.gif
