What kind of cakes are the best density to cover with fondant? Sponge cake...bundt cake...pound cake.....?
Sponge cake is probably too light. Bundt isn't just one recipe, so it depends on what you use. The cakes I use most often for fondant are pound cake variations, and they work really well.
I use fondant on almost every cake variety I make, Angel Food or other foamed egg white cakes are the only thing that doesn't work because the fondant is too heavy and crushes the cake
Good to know, AmysCakesNCandies! I was kind of afraid to experiment, and actually most of my recipes are kind of dense, but I just pulled about fifty new recipes (plus another fifty or so variations) off the "Scratch Bakers post your best recipes I & II" threads that I'd love to try, but I'm a died-in-the-wool fondanter, so I'm glad to know I can use it with a lot of them!
