Good morning I am new in cake decorating but a few weeks ago I made some cupcakes for a parent school meeting and I use the Wilton recipe for butter cream  which is the only one I know how to do... But after I finish decorating the cupcakes and place them in the refrigerator the next day the butter cream was like a little hard and not so good. Is there a way to fix that?? or do I have to put a big box in my refrigerator to keep the cold out of it????
I am talking about the Gumpaste wire flowers. I had never make a cake with real flowers yet. I just saw a video of the cake boss and he is just placing the flowers directly into the cakes without straws or nothing just the flower tape covering the wire.... Should I follow his example?

I been watching a lot of videos for decorating cakes, but I had also seen a lot of professionals just placing the flowers directly on their cakes all do they might be cover with flower tape.

I had always use the buttercream to make a little barrier to prevent the filling from ruining the fondant. but I notice sometimes that one day latter the cakes have a gulp or bubble where the filling is. I don't know if I should do what I heard on a tutorial today to use a rope of fondant instead of the buttercream? The person was saying that if we use the rope of fondant will would be better to prevent the bubbles you get when the weight of the cake could make it sag......

I am making a Spongebob cake the following weekend and I need to make the decorations, but I don't know how early in advanced I could make the decorations, the decorations I want to make are sea weed (I hope I am spelling it right) and corals but I want to make them out of fondant but I don't know how early in advance I can make them. Usually I make the decorations after I had cover the cake with fondant but in this case I don't know how early in advanced I can make...
