Can you basketweave on top of fondant? I just started cake decorating and I am teaching myself. icon_confused.gif

Welcome, newbie! Can you give more info? I'm not sure why you would want to pipe basket weave over fondant.

Welcome hthompson631! icon_biggrin.gif

Techniquely speaking....You can basketweave over fondant, but why would you want to do that? If you are going to basketweave then all you need is the cake. If your going to cover with fondant, then you should not put baskekweave over that. The whole reason to cover with fondant is for the look of it, appling basketweave would ruin the look of a fondant covered cake, and you would have spent money on fondant for nothing. icon_sad.gif

If you decide to do it, I have heard that buttercream will break down your fondant so you'd be better off using royal icing.

When I first started posting comments in this forum, I notice that someone ended their post with "JMO." Those are my initials, so I thought "what are the odds of that?" A few days later I saw that someone else ended their post the same way. icon_confused.gif I took me almost a month to find the list of acronyms. I'm glad I found that list before I made a complete fool of myself. icon_lol.gif
