Hi All!

I have made some color flow pieces for my son's B-Day cake. My concern is attaching them to the buttercream iced cake. I will be attaching the pieces to the cake with small dots/dabs of buttercream icing. Will the shortening in the icing "melt" the color flow pieces? I have read on other posts that some people use sugar cubes behing the color flow/royal icing pieces to protect them. However, this is not an option for me because the pieces I have made are small/thin pieces. The cubes will be larger than the color flow pieces.

Should I be worried????

Thank you....

Can you cut our parchment or wax paper shapes the same size as your colorflow pieces then lay them on the cake. That way they aren't actually on the cake itself but are on the paper??

You really shouldn't have a problem putting them on with or directly butter cream as long as they are dry. I mean that is the whole point of these things. icon_smile.gif

They can soften a little over time from the moisture in the icing, but it isn't gonna happen in a few minutes.
