I'm new at cake decorating and was wondering if you can cover a cake in fondant without covering it in buttercream first. Thanks.

Yes, but you need *something* to make it stick to the cake -- like piping gel, jam or?

Another thing to keep in mind is that your fondant will form to the cake, so unless you have a perfect single layer cake you will see the dips where you torte and filled it and such.

Ditto to the other 2 posts.
Also there are some people who do not like the taste/texture of fondant and they tend to peel it off to eat the cake and icing underneath. So if there is no icing you will probably see more wasted cake than normal.
