Will chocolate decorations melt if left on buttercream icing? I want to decorate my granddaughter's birthday cake the day before her party. Will the candy melt?

Decorations made from chocolate or Candy Melts will not melt on buttercream icing. As long as the cake is stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, the decorations will be fine. The only reason your chocolate or Candy Melts decorations would melt would be from heat.
