Hey everyone! I need help again. I'm doing a 2- tier cake. I was going to use rolled buttercream for the cake till I read how difficult it is to work with. So I was thinking why not icing the cake with regular buttercream and use the rolled buttercream for the circles and stripes I have to put on it. Now I'm wondering if it would work. What do you all think. Thanks everyone this is such a great place.

I've done exactly what you're suggesting and it worked just fine for me. There's a picture in my photos of the one I did - it's the blue cake with the yellow, green, and red stars and border. The rolled buttercream was fine for these small details. Would love to see pics of your cake when you're done!

I have used the rolled buttercream for decorations too, and it worked. I just can't seem to cover the cake in it, lol. I also rubbed my cut outs with a little PS before placing them on the cake, just because I didn't want it to be so shiny.
