I'm stuck for ideas on this one...
I have to make a birthday cake for a family member who doesn't like buttercream. It's to be a sponge (yellow in the US?) with roll-out fondant icing.
Any ideas what I can use instead of buttercream to make the fondant stick to the cake?
Any help appreciated.
You could brush it lightly with Karo syrup - this is what I use for dummy cakes.
I'd just use jam to stick the fondant on, but go for a seedless one
Strained apricot preserves work just fine. Or you can make cream cheese frosting and use it.
Ooohh, I'm liking the jam ideas. I have no idea how to make cream cheese frosting and it's a little daunting to me (I also have a problem with cheese as a sweet, I just can't do cheesecake!! )
So, would strawberry or raspberry jam be ok on the outside? Can you have strawberry or rasberry in the middle and apricot on the outside? Can you have apricot in the middle? Would these taste right?
Am I thinking too hard about this?
So sorry to be a pain.....
you could do a whit chocolate or chocolate ganache too
