I would like to try the classic white cake recipe and decorate it with fondant. I was wondering if its firm enough for fondant, as I have only seen pictures of white cake with cream frostings. Could anyone share their experience with this please? Thanks!

Yes it is ok to use it under fondant. Add a thick buttercream dam between  layers .

Almost any flavor cake should be o.k. under fondant.  I use mixes so can't speak to every scratch recipe but I'm sure most any one should be fine.

Thank you. All your feedbacks in the past have worked for me, so I trust it should be ok ;-)
