chocolate cake with tobleroe choc cream filling (recipe from here) - can I use this filling as icing and then put fondant on top of it? it will have to be white fondant
Trying some new things need advice on if this will taste ok and if the white fondant will cover the chocolate. Have always used crisco buttercream before but the way it clogs up sinks and tips scares me!!!! I keep picturing arteries!
thanks in advance K

The Toblerone filling is just a form of chocolate ganache. It most certainly can be used to cover a cake.

I'd think that the biggest issue is that covering a dark cake with white fondant--and not having the dark color show thru--can be tricky.

All the best,

I haven't looked at the recipe, but doesn't toblerone have chunks of nougat in it? The fondant might not lay smoothly over it.

You can get plain Toblerone. The recipe cites "or any chocolate of your choice."
