Does anyone have an opinion about using mixed mediums on a tiered cake. I'm doing a 3 tiered cake - picturing one tier with sequin fondant, one with buttercream and one with that fancy mirror glaze. I usually like to stick to ALL fondant or ALL buttercream, but each tier concept would decorate so well with these mediums......will it be sloppy???
Well lets see what google has to show: Do they help any? https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.insider.com%2F5c09858fbde70f60e8597c48%3Fwidth%3D800%26format%3Djpeg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.businessinsider.com%2Fsams-club-holiday-cakes-look-like-unicorns-2018-2&tbnid=rC7nJ3uAZnZX_M&vet=12ahUKEwjvl_Kjq__nAhUHhZ4KHcoHB3MQMygsegUIARCJAQ..i&docid=mgQJDSDU5JRWSM&w=800&h=600&q=3%20%20tier%20cakes&safe=strict&ved=2ahUKEwjvl_Kjq__nAhUHhZ4KHcoHB3MQMygsegUIARCJAQ

Does any of that help you envision your ideas??
One more idea that seems even closer to your description.
OK everyone let’s hear your opinion on this
I don't think mixed mediums are a problem at all, however, I do not believe a mirror glaze finish holds up for nearly as long as fondant or buttercream. I've only made one mirror glazed cake, but while reading about the technique, I found several references to making it no more than 24 hours prior to serving because it becomes rubbery. It also requires refrigeration, while the fondant and buttercream do not.
