I stick fondant to buttercream all the time with just a bit of water. Piping gel works great too.

Great cake! Funny thing... I noticed the inspiration picture on one of my competitors websites. I had seen it before in other places. Plus, based on their other pictures, I highly doubt they made this particular one. It bothers me but since it isn't mine, I don't say anything. Hope no one is disappointed. But I digress...

I made this exact cake with buttercream last May in goo ole NC humidity using crusting buttercream and I attached the gumpaste petals by inserting and pressing into the buttercream for the base level.  If I needed any paste it was buttercream OR gumpaste glue depending on where the petals were needing to be attached. It was perfect and no petals fell off.  (we assembled petals on site, much easier and took no time)

Can anyone give me input on which cutter to use to make these petals? I don't currently have anything that large and so I'll need to purchase something to make the petals for an upcoming wedding this month.

 

Thanks!

I used my circles and formed them into rose petal shapes.  I needed some bigger ones, so I used the lid off one of my sprinkles bottles...worked like a charm.
