I'm making a cake covered with bc for a wedding. The cake is traveling for 4 hours. I have done bc swirls on bc cakes before but i have never done swirls with royal icing. If you have done swirls with royal can you please advise me on how you like it. The swirls need to be burgandy on top of off white bc. Thank you
Just wondering if one is better than another.
I may be wrong but I thought that royal would break down on buttercream?
...really? You think it will break down?
Has anyone done it and know for sure?
I was wondering the same thing. I have a buttercream cake with dots all over the sides due in 3 weeks and I was thinking of using royoal icing also.
For Radtech, if the royal is already hard it takes longer to break down. I've put hardened royal on buttercream and had no issues but I've never tried to pipe it on while it's soft. You could make puddle dots with royal, let them dry and then place them and you should be OK as long as you don't keep the cake in the fridge where it can form condensation once removed.
Thanks everyone. I decided on the bc swirls because it is something i have done before.
