You cakes are wonderful! Great piping! Regarding your issue...the grease in buttercream does indeed break down royal icing. I even keep two sets of piping bags for this exact reason - one for BC and one for Royal.

I think your cake looks fantastic and you obviously don't even need the stencil! Very pretty! Fireman cake was awesome too! Great job!

You have to let the BC crust (really well) before using the RI for the stencil....I have done the BC/RI design but the BC REAAAALLLLLY needs to be thoroughly "crusty icon_smile.gif"

From the thread "Royal Icing Decorations on cake question", I wrote:

Yes, grease-free utensils while you're making it, but it doesn't have to be a grease-free surface that you pipe it directly onto, nor completely dried to stop it from breaking down. (moisture is the culprit.)

There's a similar thread from a few days ago that discusses what causes royal icing to break down titled "Deciding between fondant, icing, gumpaste, and buttercream". I'll paste what I wrote below...
Here's the entire thread: http://cakecentral.com/cake-de.....html+icing

...you can apparently make royal and pipe it directly onto Crisco greased forms and pipe into cooking-sprayed foil-lined lily nails!)

If you'd like to read what others have experienced, TexasSugar says that it's caused by moisture in this thread "question about royal icing":

and here "Royal icing decorations":

my favorite "will piping gel break down royal icing":

That's weird... wonder if the links work for anyone (sounds like the OP was able to open/read).

Bottom line info in the links is that royal icing doesn't break down from grease, it's moisture.

If you'd like to search for the links, remember to use the word "and" between your keywords. For example, you could try "royal and icing and moisture" or "breakdown and royal". HTH.
