AYes it will melt. it is spun sugar. once the humidity hits it it will start to melt not to mention the fats in the buttercream

I did it for two cakes I made - one was clouds on buttercream and one was fluffly snow (but on fondant so that one was ok).

I put the cotton candy on the bc took a picture came back 15 min later,  Gone.  I made it for a colleague's son as a favor. Luckily I had more cotton candy left so I handed it to her separately and told her to put it on the cake when they were ready to eat the cake.  That disappearing cotton candy magic trick is like a Las Vegas act!
