I was wondering how this would work. I've never covered a cake in only buttercream before. All the cakes I've done are fondant. However, I am wanting to use fondant decorations on this cake. I want to put little balls around the base of each tier (3 tiers) and I've made a fondant nurse who is going to stand on the top. I am thinking of cutting out a little round circle for her to stand on. Anyhow, any help or input would be appreciated!
Fondant works great on buttercream cakes. My advice is to chill the cakes well before adding certain types of decorations (like stripes) I think you will do fine!
You can certainly put fondant decorations on a buttercream cake. I think the idea of the circle
on top for the figure to stand on is a good idea.
Welcome to Cake Central!
Fondant decorations work will on buttercream. And personally I think buttercream tastes much better!
I would put a couple of skewers, wires, toothpicks, something, in your fondant nurse to attach it to the cake.
Thanks so much for all the advice! I am so nervous about this cake. Phew! Naked buttercream scares me to death.
