Mobile Question For Cake Makers

Hi Everyone

Another question from me this week!

If you are decorating a false cake (one of the polystyrene ones), do you still have to buttercream it to get the fondant to stick?

I feel like this should be an easy answer, but equally I havenít a clue!

Iíve 3 x 12Ē deep ones to ice and decorate, but having never used them before, I didnít know if the buttercream was needed or not. Donít want to waste money on ingredients I donít need.

Thanks in Advance

Gill

Warm. The jam gently to make it easier to work with and use a paint brush rather than a knife to spread it

You can just use water and the fondant will stick, just dont over wet it or the fondant will go too slimy

Thanks so much everyone!

So I definitely donít have to make more buttercream? Just jam or water will work?

Iíd use water. And as said above, not too much.

Have used it in the past with success.
