I have never made chiffon cake before, not sure I have ever had chiffon cake before?!

Anyway, I am making this recipe this weekend:

My question is, can you cover chiffon cake with fondant? Or is this one of those airy, fluffy type of cakes?

Thanks in advance! icon_smile.gif

Chiffon cakes tend to be very light and fluffy - I think fondant would squish it a bit!

It's an airy, fluffy cake. You may be able to get away with a stabilized whipped cream icing, but fondant might be too heavy. If you have any sugarveil*, that might work since it's very lightweight.
