Hi, has anyone successfully done a tres leches cake covered in fondant? I'm just doing a simple 8" cake for my friend, but I would like to have it covered in fondant. She said she likes tres leches, but also red velvet.

I thought I would inquire to see if anyone does tres leches with fondant finish?? Does it work?

Thanks so much.

I never did or thought of this,,but honestly..I don't think so..it's too moist for the fondant to lay on because fondant is heavy..I highly doubt you can do this but if someone has..that's amazing b/c this is much like a blk forest cake texture..good luck

I would not want to try this, I can't imagine it would work, the fondant would smoosh the cake, tear, gum up... eek. You could try using marzipan since it dries harder, but you'd want to cover it the European method (think wall paper, not stretching to fit), check The Well Decorated Cake by Toba Garret to see what I mean.
