Can buttercream transfers work on fondant?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if buttercream transfers work on fondant-covered cakes? My thinking is that if it's a matter of filling in an outline with frosting, it should work on fondant-topped cakes too. Am I right? It would be fun to try.

Thank you. icon_smile.gif

Yes, BCT work on top of fondant. It is no different then icing with regular BC after covering your cake in fondant, the BCT sticks to the fondant fine. I make sure that I do some sort of boarder around the BCT after I place it on the cake to ensure it doesn't slip or move around.

Thank you, sgirvan. icon_smile.gif I don't know that I'll be trying this soon--it's somewhere down my list of things to experiment with--, but this is all good to know. Thank you. icon_smile.gif

I have seen a cake w/fondant and bct. It looked good I thought but the people at the party were whispering so that the decorator and bride to be didnt hear it, that a fondant cake is supposed to look elegant, and when you put a bct on it it cheapened the look.....

I was thinking that also. but not sure since I wasn't actually looking at one.

What is the situation you're thinking about doing this for. I mean, we've all seen cartoonish fondant cakes. So it might be OK for the occasion.

So if you do it on fondant or MMF you wouldn't freeze it right? You would just pipe out the outlines & filling in w/ BC? It wouldn't be easier because you'd have to make the fondant & that takes a little time. I will be so happy when this wedding is over w/ so I can start doing FBCT!! That's what I'll do from now on!!

a BCT has to be frozen or it won't work... period. If you don't want to freeze it, you'll have to use the BC Glaze technique or something like that.
