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
Hi, I would give the bow seperatly and would advice them to put it on the cake.
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.
