Can I do one straight over an iced cake or do I need to do it separately on a piece of acetate then stick it down with icing?
It's DD's birthday this Sunday and I need to start getting it ready tomorrow I think! I'm planning to do a Hello Kitty run out icing on top of buttercream cake but will that work? Will the buttercream just make it difficult to dry if I did it that way?
Would really appreciate advice please! I'm going to be now but I'll be back tomorrow pm.
Definitely do it on something first like grease proof paper/acetate first and let it dry and then transfer to the cake. You may not get clean lines straight onto a buttercream covered cake and if you mess a bit up then you'll be done for trying to get it off the buttercream without makin a bigger mess! Also the moisture from the buttercream may stop it from setting properly, it'd probably just get a hard skin but stay quite soft underneath that.
