Hey , Im new to this . For fruit cakes I normally use marzipan under fondant for a smooth finish . I want to make a white cake with raspberry filling . The taste of marzipan is too strong for this . Do I just use buttercream and wait for it to dry a bit , or can I use modeling chocolate ?
Please reply ! I know this is probably a very basic question but I am a newbie !
You can use buttercream, ganache or any other type of icing/frosting - except whipped cream. Have Fun!
I generally use BC and get it as smooth as possible. Sugarshack's videos will help you acheive that. But ganache is nice too for a change and you get a very smooth finish.
PS: you don't have to wait for BC to dry, but you can use a crusting recipe (Sugarshack's - in recipes on CC). Good luck!
Thanks guys for all the help !
I second the ganache...it sets up really nicely and is a great surface for covering with fondant. Ganache is also easy to get really smooth with sharp edges. A white chocolate ganache would go well with your white cake & raspberry filling.
Thats great thanks . Think I will go with white chocolate ganache .
Coral3 , your cakes are amazing
