on a buttercream cake? My brides wants them on buttercream, and since I haven't done them before am hesitant. Will this hold, or too risky?
stick long kabobs where you want the swags to meet at the top of the tier and drape over...???? Just what I would do, i am sure there is a proffessional way to go about doing it though.
I have a cake on my pics with swags on buttercream. You have to make sure your buttercream is stiff consistency. I mixed my swags with gumpaste/fondant 50/50 because I heard that makes them less heavy. When I put them on the cake, I used toothpicks to hold them in place, about three. I made sure the top end was sitting on the top of the cake not the side.
i have the same issue coming up with a cake. BC and fondant swags. I was advised to go pretty thin and have them anchored on top verses the side. I am using sugar silk from global sugar art, it swags great and can be rolled very thin not as heavy as fondant/gumpaste.
