  • Can I decorate a cake with fondant?

  • I do mainly buttercream cakes and fondant decorations on them. I’ve had no problems. If the fondant pieces are dry, you’d need to attach them with buttercream or glue, etc. If the fondant pieces are’t dried, then just add a little water to the back.

  • How do you apply fondant to buttercream icing?

  • Dip your pastry brush in a small bowl of water. Shake it gently to remove excess water, and lightly brush the underside of your fondant decoration. If you are applying your decoration to fresh buttercream icing, you can skip this step. Fresh buttercream icing is a suitable adherent by itself.

  • Why won’t my fondant stick to the buttercream?

  • The fondant does not do well in that environment. I have to assume that is what you are doing. The fondant also could be absorbing some of the moisture from the buttercream. The best advice is is to wait as long as possible before decorating the cake in fondant.

  • What is the best buttercream to use under fondant?

  • As for buttercream, there are two general camps: meringue based or crusting . My personal preference and the preference of many cake designers is to use meringue-based buttercreams under fondant. Both will work just fine, so if you鈥檙e team American buttercream, then go for it! Finally, you must chill. ?
