So i've been asked to do a black forest cake. I assume I can't cover the cake with whipped cream and then cover in fondant right? So I'll put cherries and cream alternately as the filling & cover with buttercream?
Correct me if I'm wrong please or is there a way to use whipped cream under fondant?
Thanks!

NO!!!! Dont use whipped cream under fondant. There is too much moisture and it will turn the fondant to slime. Unfortunaly I know this from experience =(

A variation of a "real" black forest cake is made with chocolate cake, cherry filling, chocolate moose filling and all covered in whipped cream. No BC or fondant. You can use " Rich's Betterceam for more stabiliztion or "Whip It" that comes in little packets in your heavy cream.

If you want to make a real Black forrest with whiped cream and cherries, bake your cake, torte it, then cut out a ring from your cake, place filling into and onto the INNER part, so that you have the outside ring of each layer FREE of whipped cream and filling. Either crumbcoat the outside with bc or use apricot jam(fairly neutral in taste and does not react with fondant) The inside of the cake is then real black forrest with all the goodness, but you are also safe for the outside
