Hi all

I'm making an egg free (dairy free too) and want to pipe delicate designs directly onto the fondant. I can't use royal icing for obvious reasons - is it possible to use buttercream (i would use dairy free spread instead of butter). Can you pipe buttercream onto fondant or does it dissolve the fondant and slip off/run?

It won't dissolve the fondant but it may fall off the sides of the cake, especially if it's hot where you are.
