Hey - this is my first time making a decorated birthday cake for my kids and have realised I have forgotten something pretty key!! I need to know what to use to stick the fondant figures I have made onto the iced sponge? It's iced in fondant ready roll. I really appreciate your helpshock

Paint a very thin layer of water onto the bottom of the characters then stick onto cake.

Job done.

If you've made tall models (like 3D style) you may need a little more support to hold them in place ignores that this is starting to sound like a bra thread

I insert a piece of uncooked spaghetti through my models when I make them and then insert the end of the spaghetti into the cake at the same time as wetting the icing. It's a similar idea to using cocktail sticks but less shock if someone accidentally eats it!!!
