I'm not sure if I'm understamding the question. You can just about cover any cake with fondant and not have a problem, except for a really soft cake like Angel food. If your trying to match flavors, that doesn't really matter as well. Fondant kind of blends with whatever as it's main use is for decorating, not enhancing cake flavor, though you can make a tasty fondant that most people will enjoy. I say most, cause some can never get past the texture of fondant. icon_smile.gif

I like lorann oils to flavor my MMF. Put a little chocolate hazelnut in their for a chocolate cake or cheesecake flavor on a white cake. DELICIOUS. The possibilities are endless. Have fun.
