Can i place gumpaste decorations on a cake that has been iced with Rich's or will the moisture from the icing make the flowers go soft?

At work we use Rich's and gumpaste flowers, although they are gumpaste sprays. Our company specs say we can only use gumpaste flowers on whipped cakes if it's for an order, not for the case. The case cakes have a shelf life of 5 days. I don't know if they don't want us using them on whipped cakes because the gumpaste will get soft, or if it's because we don't have pastel colors available in whipped and they want the gumpaste flowers to be paired with pastel colors only.

If the flowers will be on there for only a day or so, then I think it would be fine. I don't know for sure, but I've had many people order gumpaste flowers on a whipped cake and I've never in 3 years heard of the flowers going soft.

oh okay, they will only be on over night and then the cake is for the afternoon so it should be good then. Thanks so much for your help!
