I would like information on using poured fondant for a cake. I am making a 8" layer cake and would like to know if I could use poured fondant on this size of cake. I have seen information in regards to petit fours, cupcakes and cake pops but not much about an actual cake. Thanks in advance.
I did it once - ONCE - because a customer insisted that a bakery from his childhood always made them that way. If you think pouring fondant on petit fours is a PITA, wait till you do it on a whole cake. You'll likely need to pour twice. Charge a LOT.
I'm new to this page what is PITA (pain in the rear?-just thought of that as I was typing the question)
I am just making a Frozen cake for fun and wondered how it would look. I have used fondant in the past but not enough to be an expert with it. I'm a huge fan of the Rosette cakes right now, not only are they beautiful but so easy!
I am pulling out the stops so to speak with this little project. Introducing myself to Royal Icing. Might try the candy glass too.
I've never done Petit Fours.
I don't have a bakery or bake cakes to sell. I just enjoy doing it so I bake them for friends and family etc.
This is heavenly desert. Personally, I think they are good just using little square cakes, not the layered ones. It's a huge pita, especially if it's important that they look perfect. If taste is more of the concern, your friends will love you for it. Hardly anyone makes them any more. I like them with almond flavoring, but there are so many options. Please send me a box of them when you're done! lol
I'm not making Petit Fours. I was asking about using the poured fondant on a full sized cake.
As it is a type of glaze rather than a frosting, Poured Fondant is rarely used as a large cake covering.
As with Petit Fours and other smaller bakery items, you will have to do multiple coats to get the coverage on a larger cake . It is also liable to crack when it is moved around..
That's what I was thinking! Thanks for the post.
