even though I use a very sharp knife, it seems if I slice a cake with fondant accents, they slide or I just have to move them out of the way
the first time, I thought maybe my fondant was to thick, and the last time my fondant was much thinner, but I did have to place the cake in the frig due to a filling and a delay in the party
but if anyone has any hints to slicing??

thanks in advance

Do you mean the fondant itself is sliding off the buttercream icing? Or just all the decorations??

Hopefully someone else can help - Becoz for me, too, if I DONT have everything "glued" down then mine comes off too. Finding out will really help - Im doing a shower cake in a few weeks that has about 200 little "soap" bubbles all over it and Ive been imagining them all rolling away when its cut!! *argh* ..
At least this will give you a BUMP so someone else might can help. Sorry!! And good luck!
