Hello there,

I'll be making a wedding cake (sort of) for a friend. I'd like to try carrot cake but I'm not sure what would be a good filling and what flavor of the buttercream icing I'm going to use before I cover it with fondant. I usually use butter and shortening and sugar for the icing. I'm not sure what it's gonna taste like if I use it for this one. Do you have any other buttercream icing recipe before you cover it with fondant?

Any suggestions pullleeezzz...

For carrot cake I use BC mix carrot or spice and add about 1 cup grated fresh carrots.
For filling I use pineapple and for icing just my regular b'cream - even if you are going to cover that w/fondant.

I add crushed pineapple, shredded coconut, and walnuts to my BC Carrot cake mix. You can ice in buttercream flavored with coconut extract. I usually use a cream cheese icing, but that wont work well under fondant.
