900_fondant-logo-on-buttercre_954171573de5e9d037e.jpgI'm making a graduation cake and I have two school logos that I've made out of fondant. The first one turned out great but after looking at it I'm afraid it may be a little thick to stick to the side of the buttercream cake. I've never had trouble before, but this logo is a decent size and I don't want to have to make it over because of the detailed cuts. It came out perfect. Someone please tell me it will be ok. I'd say it's 1/8 or just over in the white area.

Probably over an 1/8, I'm just wishful thinking here.

How thick is too thick? Anyone ever had a problem?

I don't think you will have a problem.  I've done lots of these on the side of buttercream and haven't had an issue yet.  (Knocks on wood.)  Make sure the cake is chilled for transport though.

Press it into slightly soft buttercream, stick a couple toothpicks underneath to keep it in place and refrigerate. Keep cold til delivery, take out toothpicks at last minute. You'll be golden :)

Thanks for the compliments. Logos are so tedious. Im not sure I could bare doing this one over. I used the freezer method to keep the fondant from pulling on the smaller detailed cuts. This thing is at least 4x4 so Im hoping the large, flat surface area will keep it adhered pretty good to the buttercream. Im going to keep it in the fridge over night and deliver it cold. The person im delivering it to said she was going to refrigerate it as well. Wish this one luck. Ill post pics of the finished product.
