Customer has specifically asked for Carrot cake covered in fondant for her moms 50th BD. I have not done this in combo before, and am worried about the taste?

Any one have any ideas or suggestions....also looking for what Icould pair it with for a filling as well.....

I have done carrot cake with fondant before. I use Fondarific by the way because the fondant brand does matter because every fondant tastes different but I used the normal vanilla Fondarific fondant with the carrot cake. Then for the icing I used cream cheese for the crumb coat and for the filling then in the filling I added some pecans to it. After that I treated it like any other cake covered in fondant and it worked out perfectly. Everyone loved the taste of the carrot cake with the fondant on it. So I hope this helps!

another great filling to try with carrot cake is apricot filling....I know it sounds a little strange but its a good combo. And I would do as Jack suggests- crumb coat in cream cheese icing and then vanilla fondant. BTW I have one time experimented with adding candy flavoring to fondant to alter the flavor to taste more like cream cheese and it just tasted like chemicals- DISGUSTING, do not try! good luck, I'm sure it will turn out just fine!

I have done it and it was fine too. Just like any other cake covered in fondant. You can use a vanilla BC or a cream cheese filling and crumb coat. I use Rhonda's ultimate MMF because I think it's by far the best tasting MMF. If you don't like MMF, Michelle Foster's fondant is awesome!

Thanks guys!! Glad to hear it was an okay combo when other tried it. I do use Marshmallow fondant, and was thinking about putting the cream cheese icing under it. Thanks again!

I know this is an old post - but a lot of times I fill my cake with cream cheese filling so you still get the same taste
