Can anyone tell me if you can use fondant over the Whimsical Bakehouse Buttercream? I have a batch made that I used for just a buttercream cake but now I have a cake I have to put fondant on and I don't know if it will work. I am use to buttercreams that crust. Any help is really appreciated. Need to work on this today so a quick answer is sooooo needed!
I'm am trying to fid that out for myself if you find out before I do could you please leave me a message. I also made a batch last night. Can you tell me what the consistancy is supose to be when it's done I don't know if I got it right or not.
I use this all the time...the key is not to put it on too thick or it gets too squishy underneath.I scrape it right down so there is only a crumb coat and it works fine.
I've have done this a quite a few times. I don't put the icing on very thick and also I let the cake sit in the fridge to let icing get a little firm before applying the fondant. HTH
Thank you for your response. I just can't get this icing smooth. I think I am going to give up on it and try another buttercream. Everyone likes the flavor but hard for me to work with
You might want to try the buttercream recipe that I recently put on the site. It is a crust buttercream and you can smooth it with Viva paper towels. If you look at my pics, that is all I use.
The name of the icing is called Geechigirl's Crisco-Based Crust Buttercream.
Sorry to bring up an old topic, but would this also work for fondant accents? Is the icing stable enough to support the pieces? I'm doing a candylandish cake and I was gonna make fondant candies and stick them all around and maybe some draping.
Rose-n-Crantz...I put dried fondant pieces all the time on the WBH icing and it nevers slips off!!
