Hello everyone,

My father's friend has asked for a set of Muskoka chairs d a palm tree as a topper for their wedding cake.

 I have the pieces cut out and drying at the moment.

I am just wondering if, once they are dried, I can use candy melts (coloured to the similar wood colour that my fondant/gumpaste mix is) to stick the whole creation together?

 I assumed it would be stronger than water/tylose water. Any thoughts?

 Thanks everyone, and have a great day!

Yeah, it dries like cement though so make sure you put the decorations where you want them. Once it dries you won't be able to move them around.

I use candy melts to glue things together. It works well but be quick to wipe any excess so you end up with a clean finish. :)
