can I put fondant decorations against a whipped cream or cool whip based icing? What about on a buttercream type icing? I dont want to ruin my pretty fondant decorations! Thanks
Wish I could help, but I'm actually looking for the answer to this question myself. I see lots of BC cakes here with "fondant accents" but I don't know how they are attached. Plus I had been told RI wouldn't go onto BC but there are lots of snowflake cakes that seem to have that. Very confusing.....
I just did a whipped icing heart cake I put 2 real roses and some sugared strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries leaves, and cluster of ribbon.
I made a whipped icing cake and put royal flowers on it. They are lightweight and hold onto the whipped icing well.
Just a suggestion.
hi all.. sweetcakes, from what research i've done, i understand that the high water ratio in whipping cream make it unsuitable for fondant decorations. As such, it is not advisable to add fondant decorations to whipped cream icing as the fondant will absorb the water. As for buttercream frosting, for thicker pieces of fondant, it should be fine, but for thinner pieces of fondant, over time the buttercream might "eat" into the fondant decorations as well. However, that said, i do use the crusting buttercream frosting recipe here and cover it with fondant, and have not encountered any problems so far I hope this helps!
I am thinking of doing a cake with real flowers, too. Where do you buy them? I am concerned that any pesticides might leach into a whipped cream or ganache frosting.
Thanks for any advice!
