The MOB asked for flowers on this cake
A Mother-of-Bride just called.  Top tier was destroyed before freezing.  Ordered replacement top tier to be frozen until anniversary.  Original cake had fresh daisies (we didn't do wedding cake as it was out of state) so we're patterning replacement tier after that.  What should we make the daisies from?  Won't gumpaste and RI both soften when thawed?     TIA!

We make the ganache on Day 1.  Set up in fridge.  Bring to room temp to work with.  Crumb coat, let firm up on cake, cover with fondant within an hour!
We always use a ganache crumb coat under fondant as opposed to BC.  No sliding and gives a crisp edge.   We like Elite fondant.
