Can you put buttercream decorations on top of fondant?

Linda - from Lafontaine, Ontario

Yes! Buttercream decorations can be piped onto fondant covered cakes. Likewise, fondant decorations can also be placed on buttercream iced cakes. Check out our Heart Fireworks cake and “Guests Not Pests” cake.
