I am going to attempt to make a Cinderella cake for my 3yr old Granddaughter. I am a baker not so much of a decorator. I plan on using the WASC white cake recipe and use a 1 1/2 qt bowl for dress bottom and 2 -8" rounds for a base. I have never used fondant before but bought wiltons rolled fondant for her dress. First do I use a reg. BC on the cake first before the fondant? I have read the fondant doesn't taste very good. So I want to have a tasty frosting underneath. Does it matter what kind of frosting or is there something that works better than others under fondant?
I am sorry for so many questions, but I am a glutten for punishement as I have to make a Hot Wheels cake for my Grandson this weekend. Their birthdays are one week apart to the day! YIKES. icon_surprised.gif

Thanks for any and all help.
Gloria

You can use buttercream under the fondant. I would put a thick coat on and then put it in the refridge to chill before you put the fondant on. Wilton fondant does not have a very good taste (to be honest it's nasty). You might want to try to Michelle Fosters fondant or even T's marshmellow fondant. Good Luck Jenn
