I am new here - and just wondering. For fondant covered cakes, do the cakes always have to be of such a dense and heavy variety? I am thinking it is because of the weight of the fondant... I tried a nice Brown Sugar Vanilla cake recipes but once I had it layered, filled with custard and then covered in fondant, it turned into a very dense almost unbaked tasting cake (even though the test cake came out so perfectly yummy!). I have been watching shows like Sugar Stars on the Food network and when they cut into her cakes they look springy and fluffy, not heavy and dense.... Can anyone suggest a vanilla and chocolate cake recipes that are good for fondant cakes that aren't so heavy?
PS - I have also been using Buddy Valastro's Vanilla Cake recipe which is nice but again very heavy,
Thanks so much!
