This is a beautiful cake by Couture cakes and cupcakes, I am trying to recreate the ruffles. When decorating should I put fondant under neath or just buttercream? Will the ruffles stick to the buttercream? Thanks [IMG ALT=""][/IMG]

What a lovely cake!


I have changed what I do with regards to ruffles.  I used to totally cover the cake with a thin layer of fondant, but recently I feel it is rather a waste as it is just going to get covered up, and have been sticking the ruffles straight to the ganache.  I see no difference to the finished look.  The only thing is to make sure the top is even and meets without a gap, but that is straightforward enough to do.

I put  a layer of fondant on first...I'm too scared to put right onto buttercream!  I hope it works for you because it would be so much easier!
