Alright so if I want to make a three tier cake and I need one of the tiers to be red velvet with the seven minute frosting recipe can I still cover it in fondant?

I would think so just use the 7 minute frosting as a filling and then crumb coat the outside lightly with BC that is flavored to complement the cake like choc or something like that.

I'm not familiar with how stable that recipe is....if its too fluffy, is it possible to fill the cake with that recipe and use a more stable icing underneath the fondant? For instance if I do a pumpkin or carrot cake, I'll fill the cake with cream cheese icing, but then use a regular icing under the fondant.

The 7 minute frosting is not very stable...so I would need to put a more stable frosting such as buttercream on the outside of the cake? Kitagrl your example of how you do your carrot cake is exactly what I was wondering about! Thanks so much!
