I am making a mandolin (small guitar) cake, and I am making it a pound cake and covering it in fondant, and then painting/decorating the fondant to look like the actual mandolin.
My questions are:
What type of icing/frosting would you use on a pound cake that will be covered in fondant??
Does it even need frosting???
I am baking the cake today so please help!!!!!!!!! Lol
Thank you so much, I always get the most helpful/useful advice here! This website rocks!!!!
Oh, and if anyone has any other kind of advice about this topic, please feel free to share
You can use any BC or ganache under the fondant.
I like buttercream frosting too - a pound cake is already butter so its a nice match! I used a pound cake to make a wine bottle laying down and it was super easy to carve. If your mandolin will also be laying down, I think you will be happy with the pound cake as a base. Good luck!what are you using for strings? black licorice?
