When do you place fondant swags on B/C cake? Before delivery or after cake has been delivered? How far in advance can the swags be made?

i'm certainly not an expert but i just did a cake (7) with swags and i did them the day of for a nice natural look (i also saw buddy on cakeboss do this-man can he whip those up!). i look forward though to seeing others opinions as i have another cake coming in oct. icon_smile.gif

That's what I was thinking also, especially since I'm using Chocolate fondant and not gumpaste. I don't want it to be hard. thanks It also has to be shinny. Any suggestions on how to get chocolate fondant shinny would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't ever tried it but Cake Boss uses a steamer to make his fondant shiny.
