There are people on these boards that know a lot more than me, but I would not recommend sponge cake for any type of elaborate decorations and especially not for fondant covered cakes. It's too delicate. It's much easier to decorate a heavier cake such as a pound cake type cake or a 1-2-3-4 type of cake.


For me, sponge cake is best for Tres Leches, plain whipped cream, fresh fruit and fruit compotes.
