Hey everyone!  This forum has helped me so much, you all are amazing!  This is my first time posting so please help me out.

I will be making a four tier fondant covered wedding cake in a few weeks.  Two of the tiers will be white and two will be gold.  I'm either going to dry dust or use vodka and pearl dust with the gold tiers.  The bride wants black flower outlines on the whole cake.  The wedding will be outside, in a glass room, in the heat of summer.  I have already changed my buttercream recipe to account for the heat but I am so worried about the piped black flowers.  Please help!  I have considered painting on the flower outlines, piping with candy melts, or forming them from thin ropes of black fondant.  I'd rather not do a test run with all three in the heat.  I also don't know how any of those methods would hold up on fondant dry dusted with pearl dust.  If anyone has insight to these challenges I am faced with please help me!  Thanks!!!
