This is my first post here, but I've been reading for a while- this site is a great resource!
I am making petit fours for an activity, and wanted to cover them with marzipan to get a uniform surface to pour the fondant over. One of the girls is allergic to nuts, though, so that's out. Should I just skip it and pour the fondant over the cake?
Also- I'm doing several different colors for the cakes, and I've noticed that poured fondant can be transparent. Is there something else I could use? Like maybe white chocolate- but I don't know if that would be weird over cake.
Thanks for your help!
White chocolate over cake won't be odd. People make cake balls dipped in chocolate, and some use chocolate ganache on cakes.
If you want to replace the marzipan, you could use a piece of regular fondant, rolled very thinly. Or rolled buttercream.
You can add white food coloring to the piured fondant to make it opaque.
Should I just skip it and pour the fondant over the cake?
I'd skip it.

Wow that made me want to try making petit fours! I've never seen a video demo (never looked either). Yum yum! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you- these replies are very helpful. I'll try using the white coloring (didn't know that existed!) and I'll watch the video. Thanks again!
