I don't have any gumpaste so i have to make the spout and handle out of fondant. How can i make them hold up so that they hold their shape and weight and don't break? How can i attach them to the cake so that they don't fall off? Thanks so much for any advice!!
Which fondant are you using? If it is MMF, you really need some gumtex or tylose in there, it won't ever dry hard enough. If you are in a pinch, you can use the powder that is used to stick dentures in your mouth (just make sure you tell folks not to eat them! - it is not toxic, but I am sure it won't taste too good) They need a couple of days to dry. I turn mine over a few times so that each side has a chance to dry out too. I use toothpicks to hold it in a cake. Make sure that you put them in where there is going to be CAKE (not the filling part!) I use 2 toothpicks for each piece.
