I know/I know this has probably been discussed to death but I just can't seem to find the answer
I have never done a MMF covered cake and want to try my hand at it. My question is what filling to use since from my reading MMF doesn't refridgerate well. I am tired of BC filling and wanted to try something different. I have looked through the forums and see that a few of you have refrigerated MMF cakes for a short (few hours) time with no problems. I have even read almost all of the discriptions in the wedding cake gallery..Most are BC that have fillings.
I would like to make a Bride's white cake with strawberry filling 6 inch round and a choc cake with rasberry filling 10 inch, cover with MMF.
I f I bake today, decorate tommorrow, and deliver to my work on Sat. can this be done? This is a for fun, practice, cake.
Thanks for your time and information
Me again, also wondering at what stage is the BC before I place the MMF? Just before crusting??
Helloooooo Anyone out there???? I am feeling so unloved. I can't believe it has been almost 12 hours since my first post
It is ok though because from the looks of the gallery you were all busy decorating beautiful cakes. I need to read less and do more!!!
I am sorry you have not heard from someone. Unfortunately, I am not the someone with an answer. I have done one fondant cake and used buttercream filling.
Don't feel unloved though. I think a lot of people start getting on later in the evening when other chores are done.
I have filled a cake and covered with MMF and refridgerated without a problem. Your fondant will be firm if you do this but it can be done. If you are going to do this I would suggest using a thicker layer of buttercream under your fondant. People who like MMF will still like it even when it's a little on the firm side. People who don't like MMF will still get the icing they love. And as far as your second question I usually apply my fondant pretty soon after I apply my BC I don't usually wait for it to crust. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much! My cakes are baked/ BC made/ and I am working on the MMF. I can't wait for tommorrow to put it all together
Personally I don't like to refrigerate my MMF covered cakes they tend to sweat a little when I do. I haven't done big cakes that may require to store them, I have done small ones and my kids and husband don't give them a break, it goes pretty fast. It all depends how long the cake will last.
You should cover the cake soon after you frost it cause that will help the fondant stick to your cake. Hope this helps.
The black cake i did is in mmf and i had to put it in the fridge as it had a cream filling, it was put in the fridge at school and my daughter said it was really hard, 19hrs in a fridge, i think i will let it satnd all day next time as the coldness from the mmf should keep the cream ok.
I took our wedding cake out of the freezer the other day 2 yrs its been in there, its covered in fondant and it went wet looking and sticky, then after about 6 hrs it was back to its original state and tasted great, hope this helps.
