I want to make a double - bundt pumpkin cake for Halloween and cover it in fondant. What do you do about the middle? Do I have to fill up the middle with something? My fondant tore in the middle because there was nothing under it. How do you get it down right around the sides? - mine doubled over itself and then cracked and tore. UGH!
By the way, this will be my first fondant-covered cake! I am sitting here trying to explain to my husband (who dearly loves the smooth, fluffy buttercream I make) why I would want to put fondant on a cake.
I fill the middle with rice krispy treats! And then make a stem out of it too!
Thanks for the idea - I will do that! The kids will really like that too. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong when I work with the fondant? Why does it double over itself at the base? When I tried to lift it and smooth it out, it ripped! I am so new at this - please help!!!
