Hello to all you fellow bakers out there. 

As a recent newbie to this forum I am throughly enjoying reading all your threads , they are making  very interesting reading, and giving me plenty to think about. I have one query today. I have a wedding cake to make in September and at the moment going through all the possibilities of which cake with which filling to give me some idea of what  I can do. Luckily I have been given the go ahead as to which cake bla bla bla. So could I use either a Dark or White chocolate mud cake as an option to one of the cake tiers, and coukd  you cover it with fondant. ?. This type of type cake will go down really well here.

Just one other question... Am I the only one who struggles to sleep at night because all I'm thinking about is ....CAKE and how to decorate . :)) 

Your  advice will be much appreciated. 

Happy baking! X

Hi @Gilly44 ‍ ! Welcome to the forum!

I think a mud cake will be fine for stacking and for covering with fondant. Not to mention delicious!

There's a great channel on YouTube called Cake Style. They use mud cakes for a lot of their tutorials and they share their recipes on their website. Mostly they frost with ganache before covering with fondant, but they use buttercream as well. You might like to check it out.

and oh the number of times I have literally gotten out of bed and turned on my computer to look up something cake related or just stare at pictures!

It's the world's prettiest and yummiest black hole! Just sucks you in and never let's go, lol!
