I'm delivering a cake 1 day prior to a shower & there is a 50/50 gumpaste/fondant bow (like the dress bow) that goes on top. Would I be ok to deliver the cake (iced in a crusting buttercream) w/ the bow on top or will it soften? Just needing to know if I need to box it separate & let them put the bow on. The bow will have air dried a couple of days.Thanks

It should be fine as long as your bow is completely dried and hard. The only time I had a real problem was when I made this bunny cake. I tried making hte ears out of gumpaste. I thought they were pretty hard and I stuck them right into the cake. I went outside for a 1/2 hour and when I came back they softened and broke right off. The earless bunny was a sad sight LOL! I have put a bow on a buttercream cake with no problems.
