Apologies beforehand for asking dumb question ,but here goes...

Okay, So I wanted to make a parcel type cake, but with chocolate sponge, is regular fondant okay to use with this?

Also would you use regular vanilla buttercream, or the chocolate sort?

And while I'm on about the cake, my idea is to make it like a parcel, but to have it ripped open at the centre with chocolates there.. I'm pretty sure I've seen this idea on here, and I've been looking for the pic ever since, so if anyone has made this, can you direct me to the pic please.

Thanks ever so much. icon_biggrin.gif

Yes , regular fondant is fine to use icon_biggrin.gif
Chocolate b /c would taste nice but I think vanilla would also work - even ganache or just thinned jam .

Can't help with the cake pics though, sorry !

In my pix, the teal gelatin butterfly cake was a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and white chocolate fondant. The customer loved it and I didn't have any brown color seeping through the fondant (on account of using the white buttercream.) They were happy with it and so was I! icon_biggrin.gif
