Ok so in a few months it will be my daughters first birthday and i was really hopping to make the cake my self but what would be the best cake base to hold up the fondant that is suitable for a one yr old
There are lots of great tutorials here http://cakecentral.com/t/654103/hundreds-of-tutorials-in-here
Any type of cake will work under fondant (I mean flavor) but you do need a cake that is not too soft or it can crumble under the weight. Also the icing you use under the fondant is important.
One year olds won't eat a lot of cake really. So a plain vanilla or chocolate flavor cake always goes down well, if there are other children too.
Thank you Pearl123 I also was wondering how long before hand can i make the fondant and can i leave it in the fridge until I'm ready to roll it out or do i need to roll it out as soon as i make it also if i make the hole thing in advance how long can i store it and how do i store it.
