People that I know loved moist cakes with whipped cream or anything thats light fluffy and not that sweet.
So I had tried cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream and I covered the cake with fondant, one layer worked well the other collapsed and the one that worked well...ummm...it has bulging sides...so any pros out there know how to use whipped cream successfully with fondant?

May be you should use a BC dam around your cake and then put whippedcream filling in. Also crumbcoat with BC and chill the cake to set before applying fondant.

I make very often cakes with whipped cream filling inside, because we don't like heavy cakes with buttercream.

On my blog is a tutorial with some pics...

The tutorial is in german, but the pics are self-explanatory - I hope so icon_rolleyes.gif

I don't cut WITH the ring, I cut AROUND the ring with a sharp knife.
The ring is an adjustable cake ring, which you can buy here in Germany in household supply stores or by amazon

pippilotta - thanks for sharing. your cakes are great. so, how do u keep the whipped cream from going soft ? you cover with fondant and store in the fridge? the fondant will get fingerprints & condensation. i'm very interested in working with whipped cream, thanks for your help. are you using the powdered non-dairy whip cream?
