Tips & Tricks

  • You do not need any special edible glue to adhere parts together. You can use water or water wipes to lightly damp the fondant.
  • You can make figures out of fondant, the same that is used to cover cakes, however its best to add a bit of tylose powder to it to make it harden faster.
