Hi everyone!!
I have an order for a banana cake (the real thing with bananas and walnuts in it) and will be covered in fondant. Is that possible??? I have never made one with this combination, I guess I'm just a little concern because banana cake is usually very moist(at least my recipe is) and I don't know if it will do well under fondant.
Any comments??
thank you all!

I have not covered banana cake yet but I think it can be covered since it's a dense cake.

I do it all the time. In fact, my daughters first birthday party is this weekend and I'm making a giraffe cake (like many posted in the albums) and it will be banana cake covered in fondant.

I used Macsmom banana cake version and covered it with fondant. Got rave reviews from everyone!

Yes, it'll work just fine! I used a moist banana cake for a 3D stand-up spongebob cake without any problems.
