Can someone help me with a couple of questions on fondant please???

 

-If I am making a fondant number as cake toppers ( sheet cake and 6 inch layered cake), is a skewer sturdy enough to hold the numbers up so they dont topple over once on the cake or should i use some other reinforcement?

 

-Fondant letters on buttercream - will the colors bleed if I place them on the cake overnight (colored fondant letters on a cake with white icing)?

 

TIA for your help!!

AUse gum paste for standing details likethat, of strengthen the fondant with tylose powder. Make a few days in advance, as well. Nothing should bleed unless it gets wet from humidity.

AAnd yes, a skewer should be strong enough to hold the numbers upright. I wouldn't drive with them in place though, I'd place them on the cake after delivery.

I've done it many times:)  As was mentioned, make them a few days ahead so they dry hard.  I've made them both with and without Tylose.  It does depend on just how big they are.
