Hi, I am making a cake with a bavarian cream filling and it is going to be covered in fondant. My question is do I use a buttercream to dirty ice it? or do I use the same bavarian cream filling? I guess I am most concerned about how it would taste with two different frostings and which would hold up best.

Any input will be GREATLY appreciated!

I would not use the bavarian cream to "dirty" ice the cake you need to use buttercream to ice the cake. I would also put a dam around the outer edges of the cake where you are adding your filling.

Since the cake is filled with bavarian cream, you could also use Ganache under the fondant instead of buttercream.

ooooh, that sounds great! I am putting a layer of ganache on the cake before the bavarian cream layer so that sounds like a great idea. Thank you!
