Just wondering if it's okay to do fondant accents on a cake covered in buttercream??

That's all I do- I have only covered 1 cake in fondant. Feel free to browse my pics, but I think it works great, and looks great!

do it all the time. if the fondant wont stick you can either put a little water very very sparingly on the back or use shortening on the mat you roll out on that way the back of the fondant will be sticky.

Oh my goodness! Most of my cakes have become bc with mmf accents. As posted above, if your bc crusts, just use a small clean paint brush and some water, brush a small amount of water onto the back of the mmf and 'glue' it to the bc.

Good Luck! So much fun!

I do it all the time too. I use a small amount of corn syrup applied with a paint brush to attach my fondant to my crusting buttercream.

I use regular fondant and marshmallow fondant on buttercream.

Absolutely! That is what I do for 99.99% of my cake orders!
I also put my buttercream w/fondant accents cakes in the refrigerator all the time with no problems - I know some people have trouble with this.
