I recently came across a cake website where the cake decorations were all fondant but the cake was buttercream. They looked great! These cakes were all perfectly iced and completely smooth. The decoration however was nothing but fondant.
I emailed the owner and when speaking to the designer of the cakes she said, “Most people hate the taste of fondant but they love the clean look of it. What I have done here is given the the best of two worlds and people seem to be happy.” I think that people just haven’t tasted the good fondant bakeries make or pay a lot of money for. That stuff is tasty!
So the next time your dealing with a customer who does not want an entire fondant iced cake mention using both like this designer did!
