hi all!
i am attempting my first cupcake cake will actually only be the third cake i've EVER made.
when icing the top to make it "stick" together as a cake, do you put a layer of fondant on top of the icing? or is it usually a semi-thick layer of icing that holds it all together?

thanks in advance!

Welcome to CC becki
I've never made a cupcake cake but here's a bump.

to get the cupcakes to sick I usually put a little dab of iceing on the bottom of each cupcake to kind of gule it to the board. If I want it to look like a regular cake then I ice it with a semi think layer of iceing. HTH

To keep the cupcakes stable on the base, I put a dab of frosting on the bottoms of each cupcake. Kinda like gluing it to the board with the frosting. Then just ice the tops with your usual frosting. HTH.

I've done LOTS of cupcake cakes. I also put a dab of icing on the bottom of the cupcakes that are around the outside edges of the cupcake cake. Then I put my icing into a large pastry bag. I cut off the tip of the bag (I make the opening about an inch or so, maybe a little smaller), and then I squeeze out my icing onto the top of the cupcakes. I then gently spread it out with my spatula. It is a very thick layer of buttercream. HTH.
