What to use as Glue

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm frosting a cake with buttercream and cutting out some circle designs with fondant...my question is once I attach the circles on to the cake it should stick...right? or do I need something else? and also the other way around, if I was covering a cake with fondant...can I use buttercream to attach the circle cut outs to the cake

Thanks in Advance!!

to stick fondant to fondant, i use a paintbrush and water. Some people disolve a small amount of fondant in water to make it sticky, and then apply with a paint brush.

haha thats so funny, thats why I love this site people genuinly want to help.

Fondant on buttercream shouldent be too bad just remember to not make the fondant peices to thick or heavy, the weight could drop it down.
