I have a client who want a cake covered with fondant but does not want buttercream on the cake at all. What can I use for glue between the fondant and the cake instead of buttercream?
Piping gel works but a seedless smooth jam will add nice flavor. If the jam has fruit pieces in it blend it for a few seconds so it's smooth.
when i use jam (usually on a fruit cake, not done it on sponge) i usually stick mine in the microwave for a tiny bit to get smoother and runnier so its easier to put on. plus then she gets a choice of flavours.
you can use ganache as well i think.
Thanks, she did ask for raspberry sauce, do you think that would work?
I would use jam, rather than raspberry sauce. I think the sauce might be too liquidy and make your cake too soft.
Would the pink jam show through the fondant? I don't know, just posing the question.
the fondant will be brown so I dont think it will show through. Thank you all for your help, I really appreciate it!
If you make a big mistake (like I often do), would you have to use all new fondant or could you scrape the jam off of it? Hmmm, I guess it wouldn't matter if you were just repositioning on the same cake, but when I make a mistake, it's usually an all out have to take everything off and start over!
