Im making a fondant cake for my sons 1st bday. Now Fondant is ok, but if im honest i pull it off to eat the inners...
What do you ladies use and why?? Is Apricot jam or buttercream better?
You can use either because basically all you're doing is adding something to the cake to make the fondant stick.
Personally I always use buttercream as I find this the quickest. I've already buttercreamed the middle so why stop and use something different to coat the outside of your cake?
I use apricot jam when I want my marzipan to stick to my fruitcake but that's all I use it for.
If you plan to remove the fondant then probably should go with buttercream so that you have some type of frosting. Typically the apricot is a heated brushed on version just so the fondant sticks.
