I guess I'm just really nervous about this baby shower cake I'm making for friday.
But it's gonna be a BC cake with fondant stripes and dots. So once I cut out my shapes from the fondant should I let them dry a bit or do I just put them on the cake as soon as they're cut????
Sorry to sound like such a newbie but it was just something I was wondering..
I did something similar for a friend's birthday, and I just stuck them right on the cake as soon as they were cut. Didn't have any problems with it. I was even able to "paint" them with luster dust after they were on the cake. It made for an AWESOME cake and I wish I had remembered to take pictures.
My most recent cake (princess cake in my photos) had fondant accents. I cut out the dots and stuck them on almost immediately. If anything falls, "glue" it on with a LITTLE bit of water.
SweetPea0613 I am so glad you asked this! I am making my baby shower cake this week and need to decorate it Friday. I am doing fondant stripes and dots on buttercream as well. Good luck with yours, can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for asking the question and thanks to all that answered!
Thanks to everyone!! I've been making buttercream all day...now it's time to bake...I'm gonna make my fondant tomorrow and I'll definitley post pictures when I'm done!
Just a little tip, it helps to chill your cake until the bc is hard, then add the fondant accents. This cuts down on the fingerprints and smudges, also if the bc is cold you have a tiny window of time to remove any fondant peices that you might not be happy with , without leaving a mark.
My cake is done! The picture's in my photos...and I also posted another bulletin with diff views...thanks everyone for your help
