I am icing a 4 layer 9 inch ROUND cake with buttercream. I would like to draw shapes with melted chocolate or candy melts, let them dry, then stick them on the SIDE of the cake. Has anybody ever done this? Will they stay on? Will the candy melts break down the icing at all? Thank you!
I don't think you'll have any problems unless the decorations are overly heavy. I would just add a little bit of butercream to the back of each decoration and then press it into the side of the cake.
thank you sooo much!
One more question... Can I put the cake in the refrigerator after I stick the chocolate shapes on or will then make the colors run(the candy melts are black and red)? Thank you!!
