...is this even possible? I have never tried, as I prefer to use more dense cakes, ones that can hold up to being handled. Thoughts? Thanks!
I don't think it would even be possible with angel food cake. The fondant would be too heavy and weigh down the cake.
Thanks KSMill. This is what I was thinking - but thought maybe there was a trick to it or something like that. Guess not! Oh well.... guess my clients gonna have to pick another type of cake
I've heard is impossible. Here are two threads:
There's this recipe that was covered with buttercream, and I've heard it is denser, but I've also heard that although it's delicious, it doesn't really taste like angel food cake. But maybe you should try!
The only thing I can think of is to put dowels in the frosted cake. Then place a cardboard circle on top. Then apply the fondant. The cardboard circle and dowels will bear the entire weight of the fondant. The only drawback is you would need to peel off the fondant to remove the cardboard so you could cut the frosted cake.
Sounds like a lot of hassel to me. Maybe one day I'll attempt it... but not any time soon. Thanks guys!
