I'm wanting to know if I cover my christmas cake with Almond Icing (which I think is also known as Marzipan) and then put MMF over it, will it taste ok?
The cake I made last year I used both bought almond & rolled white icing.
Could I just flavor the MMF instead and put buttercream under it?
I have seen it with Buttercream under fondant.
But I am most used to eating it at weddings with marzipan under royal icing.
or marzipan under fondant.
I guess it's just a matter of choice.
When you say 'Christmas cake' do you mean a traditional/rich fruit cake? If you do, then I would not put buttercream on it, I would stick with the Almond icing/marzipan and fondant combo. I don't use MMF myself, but being a type of fondant I imagine it would be fine over almond icing.
Mmf will be fine to use, but please please dont use Buttercream!!! youll end up with disastrous results
Thanks for the replies.
Yes it will be a fruit cake.
I will go with the almond & MMF combo.
