Do I put the glaze right away?
Can I wait add the glaze and then the fondant with no buttercream?
Do i have to add buttercream too?
Please someone help me! Thanks
I don't usually fully glaze a rum cake that I plan to ice. It gets too moist that way.
If you are glazing then it works best to do it while the cake is still warm.
I would use a rum-based brushing syrup before icing, rather than the butter-based glaze rum cake often has on it.
Don't know about fondant, but I would be afraid that the fondant would get too moist if the cake was glazed with no buttercream layer underneath it, at least a thin one.
Thanks Sadie but I learned the hard way.
It was WAY too moist and even started to go through the buttercream because my fondant kept breaking off. I hd to put two thin layers of fondant and hopefully it will be good tomorrow morning.
I am so sorry, I hope it holds up for you!
