I am looking for a receipe for cake dense enough to stand under the weight of fondant. I am not sure if the fondant on my cake stretch some, or if the cake settled. Help!

mudcake is great under fondant...it is a very dense heavy type cake that holds up to the pressure!

I use regular ole cake mixes.... nothing added. They hold up wonderful to my choc. fondant! A thin layer of fondant is the key I think.... less weight on the cake.

the durable cake recipes and the wasc (white almond sour cream), both can be found in the recipes section here, are great for fondant and for stacked cakes. dense, hold up well, but moist and yummy, too.

Nothing special. Just whatever cake I'm making will work under fondant.

I also like the 3D cake recipe on this site - very dense and moist. Also, the cake mix doctor recipes (my favorite is the orange cake that almost has a pound cake density) are pretty good. If you want to control the shape of your cake you really need a nice dense cake.

I think Pound Cakes are the absolute best for holding up under fondant, but I have covered less dense cakes as well, but just roll the fondant a bit thinner.

I agree with Jennifer. Make sure your fondant is a thin layer or you will have bubbles and it will sag.

Make sure your cake very flat on top.
