I am needing to make a white fondant covered cake and want to stencil a pattern on the fondant. Can I use buttercream or royal icing.

I know my Wilton instructor said something about when you could use icing on fondant or fondant on icing but I just can not remember what she said.

Thanks

Either, but RI would probably be better for a stencil.

As i said earlier my instructor said you can put icing on fondant but not fondant on icing or maybe it was the other way around.

Do you know?

You're actually supposed to put fondant over icing. You don't apply fondant to dry cake -- you apply a thin layer of buttercream, then your fondant.

I have applied buttercream decorations (rosettes, etc.) to fondant before. I don't know what recipe you're using for your fondant (or if you're using store bought), but if there is any fat content whatsoever (from shortening, etc.), it will break down any royal icing that you apply to the fondant. Fat and royal icing don't mix!! That's why you're supposed to use completely separate tools when working with buttercream and royal icing.

Hope this helps!
