Getting ready to frost a Banana Cake and was thinking about using the Mock Whipped Cream Frosting. I want to put fondant stripes and some other accents onto the cake plus a gum paste shoe on top. Would the fondant accents and shoe sink or slide off this frosting or should I just use a crusting buttercream to be safe?

Depends on how 'wet' the icing is and how thick you made the decos. I'm not fimiliar w/the name of the icing but I think it contains a 'slury' made from cooked flour then is basically a b'cream....
I would try to keep the shoe off until the last minute.

I agree, the stripes would be OK, and the shoe I would put on top of a little fondant disc. That icing is a real bugger to get off decorations that you may want to keep for awhile!

I use this type of icing all the time. It does work with fondant decorations, they just can't be real heavy.

Thanks, for your responses. I may just use butter cream on this one. I worked all week on the shoe and want the cake to look good for my Daughter's Birthday but will try the MWFrosting on another one. I wonder how this frosting would smooth?
