I almost always use pound cake when I am covering a cake in fondant. Do I need to do this. Is a WASC to soft? I would like to be able to use a sponge cake sometimes.
If anyone has a good spounge cake or buttercake recipe that can hold up under fondant that would be awsome.
Thanks for your help

I've covered a ton of WASC cakes with fondant and it holds up perfectly. I don't have a sponge cake recipe.

I use WASC all the time and regularly cover it with fondant. It does just fine.

I use it many times and cover it with mmf not a problem, I also use that to carve car cakes
