I'm doing a cake this weekend. It's going to be two-tiered, frosted in bc with a fondant Peruvian flag draping down...I"m worried the weight of the fondant (even rolled thinly) will pull the frosting off with the high heat we've been having. Any tips for attaching it successfully and delivering it stress-free? (haha!) Thanks!!

If you place the flag with a lot of the weight on the top of the cake, and gently manipulate your folds/draping down the sides I think it will work fine.

There's a pic in my photos of a flag on BC. (I know your cake will be stacked.) The fondant was way too thick and it still didn't pull off the icing. I delivered it last July in the Georgia heat/humidity. I use sugarshack's BC recipe/technique, it holds up perfectly!

HTH and happy cakin' icon_smile.gif

edited to say as far as "stress free delivery", use SPS!!!
