Hi all,

Have a question for you all. My cakes usually consist of box mix and pound cake box mix when decorating with fondant. I just invested in some cake decorating books for ideas. They suggest a Maderia cake. I tried it. It was really firm but the taste was not to good. Has the texture of biscotti.

OK now for the question. What do you use for a cake when decorating with fondant?

Thank you for your ideas and suggestions.

Chribo

I just use whatever I've baked icon_wink.gif
I think its safe to say that most cakes will hold up just fine with fondant. I mean, something very, very airy like angelfood cake maybe not, but most...

i use variations on a victoria sponge recipie.
and although maderia cake is generally drier than most cakes, i think something has happened to make yours too dry!
