Has anyone ever used melted candy melts to attach fondant decorations to a buttercream iced cake before??
I am making a bow out of gumpaste that is going to go on the side of my cake. I am wanting to place it in the MIDDLE of the cake, not resting on the bottom. In the past I have always used buttercream to attach my pieces. However, I was worried about the bow and fondant ribbon I am using being to heavy. I have had pieces fall off my cake due to the weight on the piece. I was told to use melted chocolate instead of buttercream.
I currently use THIN pieces of fondant decor. on the sides of my cake to prevent the fall. But, with both a thin piece bow and fondant ribbon TOGETHER, I am concerned that it might be heavy???
Does this work? Is the chocolate not to heavy to use on the buttercream??
Any tips is appreciated.
You are right...too heavy. Try attaching to a wooden or bamboo skewer.
