New to making and decorating. I'm taking Wilton decorating classes. I have an anniversary cake to make. They requested chocolate cake. Can I do chocolate buttercream filling and crumb coat then white fondant (satin ice) or should I crumb coat w/ white buttercream? Any advice would be appreciated.

As long as you don't roll the fondant super thin, you'll probably be okay. I put white Satin Ice over chocolate without a problem. Actually, if you look at my ladybug cake (with the A on top), it's white Satin Ice over dark chocolate ganache - darker than any chocolate buttercream I've ever seen.

I say go for it (in my very humble opinion)! thumbs_up.gif

Yep, it will be fine. Just "work clean" and make sure to not have any chocolate icing on your hands when you touch the white fondant. thumbs_up.gif

Exactly like they mentioned. I use chocolate ganache under my cakes and my cakes are still white.
