I have done that. It came out beautiful! The problem was when it came out of the refrigerator, the fondant started to sweat and my buttercream scrolls became kind of melted. I will not be doing it again unless that the cake does not need refrigeration.

I prefer royal...but for something like hair it should work fine.

I had a similar issue as norma20. Cream cheese fondant and blue pico dots...when I took the cake out of the fridge the "sweat" starting making the dots bleed.

This cake will not be refrigirated and will be eaten within a day - so I guess I can do it then.

Thanks for your replies!! thumbs_up.gif
