Hi - I covered my cake with fondant and it tore in some places so I took the fondant off the cake. I had a good amount of buttercream on the fondant. I kneaded the buttercream into the fondant. Is this ok to recover the cake with the same fondant? Will the fondant change the texture due to this?
Thanks

I would assume that as long as none of the crumbs from the cake were transferred to the fondant you should be fine. If there are just a few crumbs I would assume that would be fine too, you could just pick pick out the crumbs.

I am by no means an expert but that is what I would do.

Hope that helps

It should be fine, but next time scrape off as much bc as you can. The bc will break down the fondant.

Phew, I didnt want to have to run out and buy more fondant and color it! Thankfully there were no crumbs in it and it was a thin layer of buttercream. Thank you all very much!
