Basic Decorating Technique
How To Attach
Dried Fondant Shapes
If you've prepared fondant shapes ahead of time,
like I do, they are dry, colorful and pretty.
This is the recipe I use to
attach the shapes to a fresh fondant cake.
Thinned Fondant Adhesive
Use this mixture when attaching dried fondant to other fondant decorations
and also use for attaching freshly-cut fondant pieces
to lollipop sticks or florist wire.
Since this is brushed on the back of
a dried fondant shape, there is no need to
color it to match any colored fondant pieces.

Knead water into fondant until it becomes softened and sticky.
