Hi there sorry cant help with stacking however I always color my fondant with Wilton gel colors works like a charm. Yes you certainly can use the same fondant for decorations, I do it all the time icon_smile.gif good luck

If I were you, I'd wait till I had a few minutes free then google wedding cake stacking tutorial and watch it two or three times over until you could do it in your sleep. MMF colors well with gel colors. Drops will add moisture to the MMF and make it sticky. Decorations from the same batch of fondant is perfectly fine. All the best to you.
