I am COMPLETELY new to cake decorating and I have no clue as to where begin. Is a pre-made cake mix from Betty Crocker or Pillsbury too crumbly and light to cover with fondant once it's been baked? Or do I need to make my cakes from scratch and then cover with fondant and decorate? I have very limited counter space so I'm trying to see what's easiest. Thanks so much!
I only use box mixes (I prefer DH) and cover in fondant all the time. Go for it
Box mixes do fine covered with fondant. If you ever want to make it fancier but still as reliable as a box mix, look for the WASC recipe on this site. It tastes great...I never use the almond flavor in it, just double up the vanilla, but my family loves it. My mom is sure I am baking from scratch.
I also use (Betty Crocker) box mixes under fondant. I don't roll my fondant very thick.
I use betty crocker, for my chocolate cake everytime, it wins hands down and ive never had any issues covering it with fondant , I roll my fondant a little thicker than most do ,and never have problems
I use Betty Crocker mixes that are "doctored" and also scratch mixes. I think you's be safe with any cake mix/recipe (except angel of course). Welcome to Cake Central by the way! All your questions should be answered somehow from the wonderul cakers on here
What does WASC stand for? Thank!
I figured out what WASC stands for.
