Hi all,

I need to ice the lid of a shoe box with fondant (pettinice) icing but I'm not sure what I can use to make it stick to the cardboard.

Any help is appreciatedicon_smile.gif

I will use piping gel, to help fondant to stick, I just brush a thin layer of it on. You could also try brushing a little water on it also to get it to stick. I have also brush some Karo Syrup onto things so the fondant will stick.

Maybe someone else might have some more ideas that you can also use.
Hope this helps.

God Bless,

i hust used water - but any of the above would work best, or edible glue. you could use chocolate, or royal, but thats a bit messier!

vodka. it is the best way to stick fondant to anything when it is still soft, i use it to stick my fondant to ganache, fondant to fondant, fondant to cake boards etc etc!!!!! it evaporates and has no flavour, it ddoesn't absorb to much into the fondant so it doesn't go slimy and slip and also works as an ati bacterial agent disenfecting the surfaces to prevent bacterial growth between the layers!!!! (very important!!)
