I'm making a wizards of waverly place cake and I need it to be sturdy enough to hold fondant, but here's the catch it needs to be made with white cake mix because they have requested a funfetti cake and I couldn't find one in the box so I had to find a recipe to make my own. I just think that it's to fluffy to hold up to the fondant. Not too sure how to make it sturdy enough. Any and all help is appreciated
White wedding cakes hold up just fine under fondant. I wouldn't worry about your white cake mix doing the same--it's not like you're trying to cover angel food cake with fondant. Keep in mind, if you're carving/sculpting a cake that's more than 4" tall, you'll need to use a support system to prevent it from collapsing.
Sounds like the WASC would be great for what you need and just throw in some rainbow jimmies Good luck!!
Thanks! I feel a lot better now...just a lot of worrying for nothing. I'm pretty new to this and I thought all cakes covered with fondant had to be either pound cake or sponge...so that's really good to know
