My DS will be one on Sunday!! (sob)

I am making him a sponge cake with different layers in different colours so it will look like a rainbow when cut open, iced in sky blue fondant icing so it looks like the sky.

I would like to make little white birds out of the spare fondant, and some clouds too, and stick them onto the sky.

What should I use to stick the birds and clouds onto the iced cake please?

Water?

Just brush them lightly with water, and they'll stick. Would love to see a pic when you're done I'm a cake addict

Oh thank you!
When I was looking for the blue dye online I saw some edible adhesive so started to worry water wouldn't work.

If it doesn't look completely wonky I'll take a pic on Sunday & upload.
Tis my first serious cake smile

Water will be fine, just hold it in place for a few seconds. I use edible glue for heavier things but water is find for little things like you're doing
