Piping design over a sugar crystal covered fondant cake

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I am making a 3 tier fondant covered cake which is going to be covered in sugar crystals and piped with design. My question is:

 

Do I cover the fondant in sugar crystals first and then pipe the decoration over the crystals after? Or do I pipe my decoration and then proceed to cover the cake in sugar crystals after.

 

I was planning on covering with sugar crystals by brushing clear piping gel over the fondant as well.

 

Please help! Thank you :)

I would pipe the decoration first then cover the cake in clear sugar crystals. The sugar crystals shouldn't cover-up the decoration since they're clear.

 

Or you can cover the fondant in clear piping gel and go around the decoration, then cover the cake in clear sugar crystals and the decoration would stand out a little more since it would have a different texture.

 

Hope this helps!
