Hi and welcome to cc. I love the "original" WASC recipe by kakeladi found in the recipe section on this site. I also use Indydebi's buttercream recipe for my icing. You can find it on cc as well in the "most saved" recipes. Another option for icing a cake is ganache. I use the 2:1 ratio of chocolate to cream and it's really good under fondant.
This site is filled with tons of good recipes. Search the recipes and start baking Gotta warn you...this site is very addictive.
This thread is one heck of a jumping off point for flavor combos!
Set aside an extra couple hours to read through it.
thank you guys! wow the list is really long!!! heeheehee thank you very much! for the cake under the fondant, can i use chiffon?
