I have been looking at pictures of ruffle cakes, and let me specify which one...the ones where circles of fondant are cut out and folded to look like a ruffle then added onto the sides of a cake. From what I have read, they are usually done in fondant. Well, I want to make a cake for my daughter who will be leaving for Wofford College (colors are gold and black), and I want to ice the cake in buttercream. Well, instead of making the "circle ruffles" out of fondant, I used chocolate clay. Now my question is, how do I attach the ruffles to the sides of the cake? Will they stay on if the cake is iced in buttercream??
I really need some help on this, so ANY and ALL help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
