I have a friend of my husband's from work's wife that would like me to make her a cake for their child's communion. She sent me a pic of a 9x13 (1/4) slab sized cross cake cover in fondant...easy enough but she wants strawberry short cake with whipping cream? I would think that the whipping cream would ooze out and cause the fondant to bubble. does anyone have any suggestions for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx in advance icon_smile.gif

I would fill the cake with strawberries and whipped cream and use buttercream or regular bakers icing to cover and use as a "dam" for the filling. Pipe the buttercream/bakers icing around the edge and then fill with whipped cream and berries.

on metria's blog she give an excellent tutorial on "cake spackle" on the outside of the cake as well as how to use it for the "dam" to keep the filling inside so it doesnt ooze out... heres both
