I'm doing a cake for a bridal shower that looks like a chinese lantern. The problem is that my customer wants whipped cream icing instead of buttercream. I was wondering if my decorative details (made from fondant) will stick to the whipped cream or should I just play it safe and use buttercream. What do you think?
i use whipped cream buttercream icing (recipe on this site). i dont think fondant will stick to it, its a very soft icing and i'm not sure if the weight of the fondant will hold up. i havent done fondant accents on a whipped cream buttercream cake yet. maybe you can do a trial batch and try it out first on the side of your cake pan.
Thanks....I didn't think it would work but I figured that it couldn't hurt to ask.
