Please help - it has been a while since I made my banana cake recipe made it today and I  I think it is way to moist to hold up under fondant. Anyone have a recipe they would recommend. I need to carve it into a bottle shape and cover it with fondant.

I used a banana cupcake recipe from hello cupcakes book. I used it to make a pancake stack cake which was covered with fondant. I didn't carve it but as I recall it was pretty sturdy, especially after refrigeration.  I'm not sure that that helps you but maybe you could do a test run with that recipe.

AI'm looking for one also. A client wants that flavor but I've never done a banana cake. I wanted to give one a try before I confirm the order. Ann what's your recipe if you don't mind?

That is the recipe I use and it is amazing... I think I know what I did wrong today 2 things used bananas from the freezer they were probably to wet and did not cream the butter sugar long enough. I only creamed my butter for about 4 min. and when reviewing Edna's recipe which appears to be the same she recommends 10 min creaming. so I will try again tomorrow



I did Just find  found this one - I might try it if I can not get the other one to work

AWe make mud cakes here in Australia which are dense and easy to carve. I tried the banana one recently for my sons birthday and everyone loved it. It does has white chocolate in it but all you taste is banana really. I didn't use the microwave. I did it on the stove top in a pot then added the sugar water etc to that til melted and let cool for 10/15mins then continued with recipe.

AI think one recipe made an 8inch cake.

(If you google the recipe there are other sites with comments and reviews too. Some people weren't happy cos it was mushy but it sounds to me like that didn't bake it through as mine was perfect - maybe baking strips or flower nails or whatever method you use will be helpful).
