Topic: Chocolate cake with fondant
cahieanne 02/07/2010 3:30 PM
I want to make a chocolate cake on the inside, but cover it with white fondant. Would I use buttercream or chocolate buttercream under the fondant?
Also, does anyone have an enhanced chocolate cake mix they would like to share?
Thanks a lot,

When I cover a chocolate cake with fondant I put a thin coat of white buttercream under the fondant. I don't use mixes much so I can't help you with an enhanced recipe using one. I do know that many people use recipes from the Cake Doctor book to enhance mixes.

Cahieanne, you may use either chocolate buttercream or plain buttercream to crumb coat your cake before covering with fondant. Have used chocolate buttercream and it was soo yummy. ^_^

don't use cake mixes ... but if you want a outstanding chocolate cake, make my Fantastic Devil's Food Cake ... the recipe is posted here. Best chohcolate cake you'll ever eat. Once you eat a piece of this cake, you can't get enough ... you'll keep coming back for more. ^_^

Where is that yummy recipe? I will make it!
I am making a birthday cake for my granddaughter for Sunday and it's going to be chocolate with white fondant with those little cut out presents on it. (She's 7)
