Would i use royal icing or buttercream? i worry the buttercream would caues it to slide off.. thoughts?

the cake i'm doing soon is inspired by Artistintraining07's sex in the city cake but will be modified.. (mob kept changing her mind lol)


Thanks so much AIT, you were such a big help and i appreciate your time!

the cake the mom and bride chose was a round version... then the colors changed to the base frosting being buttercream (instead of fondant in the pic) with orange and pink circles instead of black and pink. and of course a wedding cake topper instead with the bride dragging a reluctant groom.

i plan on making mmf circles and attaching them to the buttercream and if she doesn't get the rhinestone trim intime i may have to make the trim with mmf also but thats no big.. i just need to know for sure what she's doing.

glad to know that works. i was worried the additional buttercream would cause the circles to slide where no circle has gone before (lol)

I just wet the back of the fondant with a little clear vanilla.
