So simple I know, but how do you stick the fondant cut outs- circles, flowers, stripes etc. to stick to a fondant covered cake? I am planning my first fondant cake for my daughters first birthday, and I want to know everything before I start (and ruin it if I do it wrong).
If you just cut them out, you can wet them with water on the backs and just stick them on. If they've been allowed to dry, you can attach with Royal Icing.
You can mix meringue powder and water ,I use equal parts, and it makes a glue.
Kristycakes... Is that all?? Wow! Ha ha! I assumed it would be a lot more difficult than that! Thank you so much for a quick reply! I can't wait til her birthday rolls around... I wanna get started!
Yes really just to repeat the other posters, if it is something which is dried out I use royal icing and have even used buttercream before, water is great but don't soak the fondant with it. Alcohol such as vodka is also the same as water but dries out quicker than water iv been told
You can also use a bit of shortening on the back. This way you can easily reposition the item if you do not like it's location.
