Am making a baby shower cake from a picture. The mom wants white fondant over chocolate frosting, can this be done without the chocolate showing through? I need to respond today, TIA!

Yes, make your fondant no less than 1/8"thick. It will be fine.

You've done this before?

I've done thus before. Did not have a problem. As long as your fondant isn't too thin you will be fine.

I've done it as well and I roll my fondant about an 1/8" thick.

Every one of the wedding cakes that I have posted have at least one chocolate tier with chocolate buttercream? Can you tell which tier? The only thing that you need to be careful is not to smear the buttercream if stacking because then it will show around the bottom edge.

Yes, it absolutely works. An alternative, though, is to use ganache instead of buttercream. That way, you can even put an extra coat of white ganache over the dark ganache and cover that with fondant so there is no chance whatsoever of show-through! I did just that with my teapot cake ... http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2146147 ... but again, if you roll your fondant on the thicker side, not necessary at all. HTH!

I also have done it and like the others, I have just rolled my fondant a little thicker than normal - no problem.
