Can I use Glucose mixed with a little water to make an edible glue that I would use to "glue" fondant pieces together on some characters I'm making? If not, how do I make it? Thanks!

Many melt down some fondant in their microwave and use that as *glue*

I combine equal parts of water and castor sugar -
Place in saucepan and bring to a gentle bboil - stirring until sugar is dissolved
Allow to boil roughly 30 seconds
When cool pour into sterilized jar.
Will keep in fridge for weeks.

When you need to use some - pour into a seprate dish - that way you are not contaminating the whole jar.

I take a small piece of fondant or gum paste and mix with a small amount of warm water until the fondant/GP disappears. Seems to work well.

msulli10 - Can I use Gum-tex and water? For the tylose & water, do you just add water until it's the consistency you want? Thanks!

I just made edible glue yesterday using 1.5 tbsp water and 1/4 tsp tylose. Shake up in little jar and leave overnight. Anything not mixed at first will disolve and thicken overnight. I used it today to glue pieces of gumpaste to eachother and glitter on gumpase and it worked great!
