I have a birthday cake request with dark chocolate genache as the primary icing, and a request for a decorated white MMF plaque on top. I've never done this combination before. Any precautions I should take in using the white fondant on the chocolate genache?

Get it right the first time so you don't have to pull your fondant off the cake icon_wink.gif Other than that, should be like anything else.

Shouldn't be a drama. I've used white fondant over dark ganache many times with no problems.

I love the Australian cakers. they have given courage to scores of American cakers when it comes to ganache under fondant. Bravo to our friends down under
