strongest adhesive - science project
What is the strongest substance for building a gingerbread house? and why?
1. liquid nails
2. tacky glue
3. elmers school glue
4. royal icing

Bubble gum would be best...... if you chew it first it stays good and sticky a long time!
What does this question have to do with DIY repairs?

i would use 2-part epoxy.

don't let the dog eat your ginger bread house

but probably the answer is the icing because the material does not desolve the gingerbread

Aren't you supposed to figure that out by yourself?

Be kind of a waste to use a glue that is much stronger than the gingerbread---I'd use a home made icing.

This is a DIY site after all---

Try them all --take pictures--and get back to us---

True! It'd be a real PITA to build one only to have the city come along and tell you to tear it down! ....especially if Hansel and Gretel are busy!
