Please help... I am worried... I am making my first wedding cake for a friend of mine. It is my gift to her. The wedding is tomorrow, but I wanted to decorate today. If I put them on a day early, will my fondant flowers soften and wilt from the buttercream? I didn't know if the shortening grease will seep into the flowers and soften them. Thanks!
I put fondant flowers whether dried or soft on buttercream all the time and I have never had any wilt.The only time it did was when I poked curly cues through frozen semi thawed cupcakes and the condensation wilted the cues.
As long as you don't put the cake in an airtight container you are fine.
Good to know! Thanks! I was planning on putting the 6'' layer in an airtight container. I guess I won't... I will just loosely cover it.
Hmmm-mine always do. I wonder what I'm doing wrong?
Mandy do you put it in an air tight container or the fridge?
No, neither. Maybe it's really humid when this happens? Maybe they need to be even dryer before I put them on the cake?
Hmmm, I'm not sure. The only times I have had fondant or gumpaste flowers wilt is when I closed them in something with a cake. And I live in Texas so I know humid.
