Hi Guys! Is there a certain type of Sponge cake that can hold rolled fondant? I usually read in books that they use Victorian Sponge as the base. Have you ever tried it? icon_smile.gif

ive covered victoria sponge and madeira cake both with fondant and never had a problem i think it depends on the weight of decoration you are going to put on the cake where the problems might begin
