Fondant Over Chocolate?

I don't have a lot of experience with fondant, so I'm hoping someone else has done something similar to what I'm doing this weekend. I'm making a large cake that will be chocolate on one half and vanilla on the other. They want the vanilla side frosted with white frosting, and the chocolate side frosted with chocolate frosting. The design requires that the whole thing be covered in white fondant. What I'm wondering is whether the fondant will show a "shadow" of the chocolate side. Will the two sides of the cake look different? Or will the fondant be equally white all over?

Thanks for any info you can share.

It will depend on how thick you roll out your fondant. if it's too thin, then yes you will see a diffenrence (and more bumps)

If you use buttercream a bit ticker than a crumbcoating, I don't think it will show. I did a Chocolate cake covered with normal bc and covered in in white sugarpaste. No problem. icon_smile.gif
