Please forgive my ignorance ladies but I just wanted to ask a question. Can you decorate a chocolate wrapped cake with gumpaste decorations? For instance a flat stenciled image that is painted? Perhaps it might not work..Just thought maybe those of you rich with cake decorating knowledge would perhaps know the answer to this. I have looked over this site and googled it to death. Any answers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you ladies in advance icon_smile.gif

I've never put gumpaste on a chocolate wrapped cake, but I would say that it would depend on the thickness of the chocolate as well as the weight of the gumpaste decorations. Sometimes it can be more helpful to experiment for yourself and see what works for you icon_smile.gif Good luck!

Sure you can...Just attach the gumpaste to the chocolate wrap with some melted chocolate and it ain't goin' nowhere. Just make sure you put it in the right place, because it really won't budge after the chocolate cools off.
