I am decorating a fondant covered cake with piped on swirls and dots, does anyone have a suggestion for the best type of icing to use. I currently use a swiss meringue BC for all my cakes but with the heat of summer, I'm afraid it will drip and melt right off the cake. Is royal icing best or is there a BC that will adhere to the fondant?
I usually don't do piping on fondant, so am not familiar with this...
Any help would be greatly apprecieated!!!
Thank you in advance
I would go with the Royal.
I second that - go with the Royal Icing. Good Luck.
I use royal. IT WORKS GREAT! GOOD LUCK!
I have always wondered about this too.
If you use Royal, when you cut the cake does it all kind of fall off? How do you cut through the royal decorations?
Use the royal. You will be thrilled with the results!!
I've only done it once and I used buttercream only because that's what I was using under the fondant and for the filling and it turned out great. (small pink cake in my pics) But I've also wondered whether or not you could use royal now I know lol tks everyone.
what a pretty cake! Love the scrollwork
very nice love the color contrast
