I am making my very FIRST wedding cake. The bride picked a cake from one of my Wiltons books that was covered in fondant and said that she'd prefer buttercream. The problem is that the whole cake is covered in little fondant balls. I agreed to do the buttercream at first and then realized that the balls would probably be to heavy to stick to the buttercream properly without being "pushed in". Is this a legitimate concern. I have already discussed this with her and she agreed to do the fondant instead, but I would still like to know for future reference if this will work. "fondant balls on buttercream"... Thanks in advance for your help...

Could you tell us which book and page the picture is on so we can know which one you are referring to?
Can't recall such a cake.... but would have to look at it to see just how big the fondant balls are.
