AI am making a choc mousse cake and plan on using whipped cream to ice the top and sides. Can i stick fondant and gumpaste decoration to whipped cream? What should I use as a glue? I just want to glue on simple fondant rounds/circles of different colors on the sides.

Also should i let the cream set up a bit in the fridge before putting the decorations on it?

Thank you!

AI think the fondant may bleed its colours onto the whipped cream frosting. why don't you try using something else to make the circles, chocolate chips maybe....

I once put fondant 'rolled roses' (if you can call big ugly chunks of thick fondant rolled into coils roses lol) onto whipped cream and I can tell you that the colour ran everywhere. They didn't just bleed a little, there was literally little rivers of fondant running all over the whipped cream. It is definitely on my 'don't do that again.....ever' list.

I don't think the whipped cream will hold the circles especially on the sides.

AThank you all. I will use smbc instead of whipped cream then.

Hello all,


So would it matter if I use stabilized whipped cream?  


Today I am working on a cake for my brother and he likes my strawberry and whipped cream cake.  It is his anniversary, so I am thinking I will place some gumpaste flowers on the top of the cake to make it a lil fancy :)


Should I place a lil bit of parchment paper under the flowers to prevent bleeding of colors?  I am a complete novice when it comes to decorating and hence so many questions.  Thanks all!!
