Hi all

So happy to find this forum. I have been practising fondant cake recently. Tried to cover butter or sponge cake with mmf n so far is ok. But will like to know can put fondant cake in the fridge? If so, then can put whip cream or fruit filling which need to be chilled.

Thanks!

never try covering a whole chiffon cake or light sponge cake with fondant. the cake will collapse.

Use any recipes you know or like. Preferably a heavy cake or simply put, a cake that holds well on its own. This is often a cake that has butter in it. Although some sponge cakes can be modified to make it a bit more sturdy.

Hi Gina,

Do you think the steam moist chocolate cake recipe will be suitable for fondant cakes?
My dd2's bday coming and would like to try this out.

Tks, blessings, hannah

Personally I have not tried it. But have seen other forum members use that cake to cover in fondant.

as long as the cake is firm...should be okay. I have tried using sponge cake before. It works ..but the sponge cake recipe must be modified. to make it more firm by adding more flour.

Many thanks gina and bktan,

The last time I made using a baked choc cake recipe, it turned out dry and hard. Also Thought of not using any cream cheese frosting this time, before placing the fondant, do you all think it'll taste good?

Planning to make a "hello kitty head" for dd2's bday next week loving u

Hi Hannah

I found steam choco cake is softer than baked one. I apply a thin layer of apricot jam b4 covering the fondant. This is one of the cake I using steam choco cake.

Wow BKtan,
What an amazing cake you have done! My children will fall off their chairs if mummy makes this one . LOL..
I attempted a thomas train for ds, and it's a " nice to see, not nice to eat" cake. haha.. I clingwrapped it and froze it until today since last yr. Ds opens the freezer just to look at the "corpse" every now and then..

The fondant was melting so much the last time i made, in panic, i used corn oil to oil my hands as I shape the fondant. It was easy to roll, but the fondant tasted yucky. Ya, BIG mistake..
This time round, I'll try the hello kitty with steam choc cake, hope it'll turn out nice to eat. Will try to spread the apricot jam. Haven't eaten it before tho.
Also read that MMF is more suitable and tasty. So doing my homework now..

Thanks for the tips you have given. Very Happy
