I have done them both ways. And it works well in both mediums.
I sometimes feel the fondant wont be seen as much so why bother with the extra step..
But on the other hand it might be easier for some people to handle it.
Here is one I did with buttercream. I added gum glue with a brush and grab the suggar with my hand and attached it. It's messy, so keep paper all around so you can reuse what falls down. I did this after the cake was stacked
