Rolled fondant on carrot cake?
Question: I have made a carrot cake and don't wish to use marzipan. Can I put rolled fondant icing directly onto the cake?
Hi Anita, Yes you can put rolled fondant directly onto a carrot cake, however you may be able to see the cake underneath through it and find it difficult to stick the fondant onto the cake. So my suggestion is to layer some butter cream frosting
onto the carrot cake or even carrot cake icing
before placing the rolled fondant onto the cake.
Fondant to cover filled cake
Hi.. this site is really a big help. Can I cover my cake with fondant, filled with chocolate ganache and cherry? thanks. I plan to make it Sunday night for an early Monday b-day celebration.YES by Lorelie
Hi yes you can. I am learning through helpful visitors that that you can refrigerate Satin Ice Fondant. So if this is so then you can fill your cake with chocolate mousse. Thanks for visiting. Please come back and let us know how it worked out for you.

I live in a very hot and humid climate. I guess "no fridge tip" doesn't apply to me...or? I can imagine my cake running down the table after half an hour out of fridge :) What will happen to fondant if the cake is put in the fridge?

Hi Calypso, Lately people have been posting that some brands, such as Satin Ice Fondant can be refrigerated with no problems. My experience in the past with fondant has been that it gets shiny and sticky in the fridge and if you have colored pieces for decoration they can run. When the cold fondant meets the warm air your cakes can sweat.
Here is my suggestion. After covering your cakes
with fondant box them and then place in the fridge. Take them out a few hours prior to the event and leave in the boxes to come to room temperature.
Buttercream underneath fondant
Hello, I have baked a few celebration cakes and am a keen sugar modeller. I always use vanilla sponge with a vanilla buttercream and jam and crumb coat the whole cake with BC before putting the fondant on top. I am bored with plain buttercream but can you crumb coat a cake with anything else underneath fondant?
Hi yes you can use a white chocolate or even a dark chocolate ganache under a fondant for variety.
Hi, I'm making a red velvet cake, do you think having fondant on top is ok?
Answer by Lorelie
Hi Karen, Sure Karen you can use fondant on a red velvet cake.
I have never baked a cake before but decided to bake my first cake for son's birthday in a few days. I am planning on baking a star-shaped cake and cover it with fondant. Since I have never baked a cake and never used fondant for anything before, please, advise what cake do you think I should bake (would appreciate the recipe as well) and what icing/frosting to use on cake before putting fondant (I've already bought 2 containers of Fondarific fondant off of amazon). I really don't care for a flavor of the cake (as long as it is considered traditionally a tasty one) but I want to make sure that it will be easy enough to make for the first-timer.
Many thanks!Hi A good recipe to use would be the White cake. It is firm for your fondant. Use the easy buttercream frosting on the cake before fondant. Good luck with your start birthday cake :-)
