I have been experimenting with fondant and made a triple layer zebra print cake for my daughters graduation. But my fondant cakes are dense like they absorb all the frosting and the top layer of frosting under the fondant turns slimy. Any suggestions.

Why frosting are you using under the fondant?

So the fondant has something smooth to adhere to the cake . plus alot of people dont like the taste or texture of fondant this way they can pull the frosting off.

I think she meant "What" not "why" Like, buttercream or what? Odd, I never have this problem, and I don't make a different kind of cake to cover in fondant.

I actually used just a pilsbury creamy frosting ( not the whipped).
