Yes, you can place fondant accents on a BC cake. I did that with the Glasgow Rangers cake in my pics. I did fondant letters to go all the way around the outside of the cake. I cut out the letters over a week in advance and let them dry in a covered (but not airtight) container kept out of the light to avoid colour fading. I then brushed each letter lightly with a damp paintbrush and set them into the cake. Making a template of the size of design you need would be an OK way to go about it.

make your template, cut them out, let them dry a bit and then attach with some water!
