I am making a three tier beach themed caked and I was wondering if I could add fondant decorations like fondant shells and starfish made in molds without them sliding or melting. I usually make my buttercream with 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening. Any thoughts?
Can I put fondant decorations on a buttercream cake?

Thank you. I have some that will rest around the borders like shells. But I also have some palm frans that I need to put on the cake. I did already make them and they are hardening but I could make them later when it's time to put the cake together. What would happen to the hardened fondant on the buttercream?
It's fine if it's hard already! You just can't manipulate it to bend without breaking it-that's all I wanted to point out. Either way it's fine to apply to BC.
