I thought I read somewhere that RI decorations that are placed on buttercream will "melt" (i.e. lose their shape). Am I remembering correctly? I wanted to put some RI snowflakes directly on a BC cake, but they will be sitting on the BC for at least 9 hours before eating. Is this a bad idea? What do you recommend I do? (i.e. pipe BC snowflakes instead, etc.)
They should be fine. Don't worry!
Thanks! I'm so glad to hear that. Also, I forgot to ask...how do you attach the snowflakes to wires?
Wow...very pretty, kakeladi! Thank you for also for responding. It's good to know that it just an old wives' tale! I was wondering...can you put the RI decorations on indefinitely? Or is their a time frame that I should consider? Or is this part of the old wives' tale, too?
The thinner the deco the more chance there might be a problem. I would hold off applying what I could that is RI until the last minute but I have never had a problem Sometime some item might soften a bit but it will not melt, loose their shape or turn into a puddle for sure.
