Vanilla cake/yellow cake/sponge cakes are ok for fondant. I bake sponge, mud and fruit cakes and they are all ok for fondant.

its all about how you stack and your support system.


Bad support will make any cake fail

You can go on youtube and type in 'how to stack cakes' and you'll get lots of videos that show every step.

by the way am always using the basic sponge cake recipe (4 eggs_150 flour_150 sugar) and i douple it depending on my pan and ma cake height that i want but ita really soft and crumpy and not for carving very well so i want to try 1234 cake or madeira cake what you think?

Sorry I haven't tried 1234 but Madeira is perfect for carving. You can also try freezing your sponge cake before carving. So you torte, then fill with icing, then place in the freezer for about 30mins before carving. If the cake won't fit in the freezer put in the fridge for an hour or more. As long as the cake is very cold and firm but not solid, it can be carved.
