I’m in the process of planning a winter wonderland/snowman birthday cake for my son’s and my daughter’s upcoming birthdays. I’m envisioning a snow scene with a white buttercream (likely IMBC with white chocolate) and meringue snowman, trees, and a blue candy lake (melting blue candies). Does anyone have experience with meringues on buttercream? The cake will likely need refrigeration, but I’m hoping that after it’s at room temp I can apply the meringue decorations and they will hold up for a few hours.
I know meringues don’t do well in humid environments, but if anyone has had experience with this, I’d appreciate any suggestions. I will likely attempt a few tests, but even tests are not totally reliable unless of the same magnitude as the end product!
