Im making a cake and Ive been making cakes for a year or so seriously but i have never tried putting fondant designs on buttercream. I have layed fondant out on buttercream then put other fondant designs on but i was wondering if my buttercream crusts really well could i stick fondant designs on the sides of a cake if it just has buttercream? this may be a dumb question..but i need to know the answer lol
Yes. I attach either when the buttercream on the cake is still soft or I add BC to the back of the fondant pieces and then attach them.
Thanks so much ive been learning alot within the past few months on dos and donts by making mistakes and while thats helpful and they were just me having fun i can not mess up this cake lol
Hello Ladies....I am considering the same on a wedding cake I'm doing.
She wants all tiers pure white BC and I thought I'd do scrolls, but if I can't scroll without a stencil - I'm up a creek! So I thought I'd make them out of RI or fondant.
I was told that RI to BC will dissolve b/c of the fat content in the BC - true or false?
What BC recipe works best for covering cakes???
so glad I found this post! would appreciate your input,
Pipe a buttercream scroll on buttercream, easy peasy. Just practice a little beforehand and use either a 2 or 3 tip. It will take forever to cut out each scroll, much easier to pipe.
