I use a sponge recipe that does not crumb, so I do not need to buttercream to crumbcoat. I want to stick the fondant straight on a sponge as I have used a wilton teddy pan and want to make sure the features of the teddy are still kept. Can I use a thin layer of jam and a thin layer of fondant.
or would it ruin the fondant because it is wet?
I have done it a few months ago and I cannot remember how I did it.
Any advice would be appriciated. Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

thats the way to do it, though i would go for apricot jam rather than the red varieties cause its got less colour. be sure to post a picture icon_smile.gif

That should work fine. Some folks even recommend brushing a chilled, crusted crumb coat of buttercream with jam to help the fondant stick.
