I am thinking out loud here. =)
I have a cake I am in the "planning" stages. It will be a "tiered" cake. 10"round bottom and a 6" round top. I want the bottom tier to have fondant swags going around it.
Will these stick and STAY on a BC iced cake? I am thinking that I will attach them with melted chocolate, but
I am worried that the swags will be to heavy to be attached to the sides of a BC iced cake rather than a fondant covered cake....
Have any of you Cakers done this before????
Pictures, Pictures, Pictures to share???
Tips, suggestions are welcomed....
I don't know how to attach a picture here, but I have one posted in my photos under my user name. It is a tiered cake in pink with brown scrollwork and fondant swags and bows. I attached them with melted chocolate and they stayed on without any problems. I did allow the buttercream to crust well and I held the swag or bow in place for a full minute before letting go. I allowed the swags to set before attaching the bows. Hope that helps. Let me know if I didn't explain well enough.

Thank you so much for the visuals. Glad to see that BC was used on the cakes and not fondant! I think I am going to give it a try!!!
can you use this method to attach fondant or gumpaste flowers, too? I'm totally new to this (bread baker!) art and I feel lost!
