I've been asked to do a cake for a woman turning 80 and I have some ideas, but not sure of a couple things. 1, Can you put buttercream flowers on fondant? If I knew gumpaste flowers, I'd prefer to do that. 2. What do I use to glue a 50/50 plaque on the side of the same fondant covered cake?

Any advi bnhjse is appreciated.

Sure you can use butter cream flowers on fondant.

To attach the plaque you can just use a little water or "melt" a bit of gumpaste in water to form a paste and then brush that on the back of the plaque. Either works fine.

I always use piping gel to stick anything on a cake. Because it's clear and if you do happen to get some in the wrong place, you wont' see it. It sets 'hard'. icon_smile.gif
