Want to make a yellow cake with caramel frosting but decorate using fondant. Is caramel to soft to support the fondant. Tks.
probably too soft
just depends on the exact caramel and the exact decor and placement
usually caramel frosting is pretty soft though
so if you just put something on top and did a bottom border--probably would be fine
but if you decorate the sides it might slide
and why not test it
make some caramel and put some decor in it and see what happens--it might break it down--maybe maybe not
if the caramel comes out more like candy than icing should be fine
if it comes out like icing...
Thanks bunches for your reply!!!
I will try tomorrow but didn't want to waste the ingredients(sp) if it was a known no. The only deco will be rhinestone ribbon along the bottom 2 tiers of the cake.
If you have problems with the sides, you could always use the caramel as a filling and on top for the flavor with your regular on the sides.
AIt depends on the type of recipe you make for the caramel frosting. I make mine from scratch. If it is the poured tpye of caramel icing you may have a problem. If it is a recipe that requires powder sugar and it whips up like frosting, you might have a better chance of it working. Also make sure your fondant decorations are not real thick. Thinner, smaller decorations may work a lot better. I hope everything works out well!
