I have been asked to make a two tier cake for 80 people. They want a strawberry shortcake and covered in fondant. Can this be done?
Any good receipes for the shortcake?
Maybe strawberry shortcake is different where you come from. Here, it's served in a bowl, has a split biscuit or scone filled with macerated sliced berries and extra juice, then topped with whipped cream.
If you are talking about a cake filled & iced with fresh strawberries mixed with whipped icing.. then...no....do not cover it in fondant.
I'm with Leah....I only know "shortcake" as those spongy round discs you can buy in a 4-pack....covered in milk, strawberries & whipped cream.
I don't think you can...strawberry shortcake is way to soft and wouldn't be able to hold the fondant...and the fresh strawberry in the middle...not good! You would have to make it the same day you need it....or the day before (since fresh strawberry tends to liquify).
If you try it, let us know if it works :)
