Today is ice and decorate day.

I was wondering if I could use my fresh strawberry BC (no extra color added so it's light pink with the seeds) to go over the cake with under the MM Fondant or I had to use my white Vanilla BC?

The cake is being filled with the strawberry BC but just wasn't sure if I had to do white under the white fondant or the fondant was opaque enough to be able to hold a color underneath. I have only used white under white previously so I am just totally unsure.

I hope I made the question clear enough. Thanks in advance for your help! icon_biggrin.gif

I think it's ok to use it.

thank you.. I was holding off filling because I didn't know what color to damn the layers in. The MMF will then have "polka dots" in bright colors all around so it should hide a little, right? icon_smile.gif

SO when would you NOT use a colored BC underneath a white fondant? When it's dark like chocolate?

I covered chocolate in fondant as well. Hmmm, maybe when it's super bright neon yellow or green! icon_wink.gif

great to know - thank you! If you did chocolate before with white over... then I certainly feel better about my pale pink icon_smile.gif

Oh yeah. I just roll a little thicker, like maybe between an 1/8-1/4, NOT 1/2" bigger. But for the strawberry, as thin as possible, like a 1/16-1/8.

Lots of people cover their cake with chocolate ganache and cover cake with white fondant. I have done the ganache and it is fine - you do not see the chocolate. But as above posters stated you need to roll your fondant thicker.

I have also tinted my BC light pink and light mint green and covered with white fondant and there were no issues with bleeding or seeing the pink or green at all.

I would worry if I tinted my BC a very deep or dark color. But I would not be concerned if I was using chocolate BC as LaBella stated. I too think it is the dark or neon BC colors that would cause problems.
