Hi fellow cakerators! I'm putting together a cake today/tomorrow and am starting to get the decorative bits together now. The decor is largely up to me, but the recipe MUST be the birthday girl's mother's Black Forrest Cake, and the icing is a rich buttercream. I wanted to try sugar tiles on the bottom teir, but I'm not sure about tiling them into the buttercream, as most people attach them to fondant with RI. Any suggestions? or should I just steer clear of them for another day?
you should be fine. You could use a dot of bc to hold it in place, or just don't let the bc crust and press them in while it's still wet.
ooooh - definitely do it - and post a pic quick because i am fascinated with the sugar tiles!
Thanks! I'm picking up the Isomalt on a trip into the district tonight. I'll post pics tomorrow night or Monday upon return from Philly. I hope it does work out. I also have to work in some chocolate interpretations of DNA strands and Proteins. Its a Biochemist Birthday!
