i am doing my daughter's graduation cake. she wants buttercream and fondant drapes.
my question: how do you attach fondant drapes so they won't fall off?
i would prefer a fondant covered cake, but my daughter isn't fond of it, so i have to go with all buttercream. i just don't want the drapes to fall off during the celebration.
I attach mine with toothpicks and use other decoration like flowers or something to hide it. I've never draped a fondant cake, but I can't imagine it being much different that what you would normally do.
toothpicks...never thought of that. just hope if remember to take them out when i serve the cake.
i also wondered if that was possible,i just assumed the fondant would be too heavy and fall off and pull the buttercream with it.
Yep...do it all the time. Only use buttercream to hold it.
I've done it with toothpicks. I like the security it gave me. It probably would have held just fine with only the bc, but I wasn't completely confident so I used toothpicks.
