Can you use royal icing decorations on butter cream icing?

jane - from tanarac, FL

Absolutely! You should not have any issues putting dried royal icing decorations on buttercream. After a while the royal icing decorations will begin to break down from the fat in the buttercream. For best results, place the decorations on your cake the day of. This way your royal icing decorations will look their best.
