Thank-you I will def' try the extra egg in the mix. I only use MMF and I can only pray it works. I might just have to do a trial run with this combo. thanks again ladiesicon_smile.gif

Please post your results.  I will be making a fondant covered red velvet cake in 2 wks.  I have never made a red velvet cake before, so this will be my 1st- newbie here. I also make my own MMF.  I have done white chocolate cream cheese frostings on cakes and their layers, then covered with fondant- commercial and MMF. I do find my frosting doesn't crust well and is a bit soft, so my fondant isn't perfectly smooth on the sides, showing seams of layers. Frustrating. It seems like the frosting was just too soft and the fondant kind of slides and doesn't adhere perfectly. I'm sure I am the only one who noticed, but I love a smooth cake and work it over and over to get smooth.  

Looking forward to hearing your results, before I make my cake. It has to taste outrageous too!

I couldn't resist the thread title (even though I don't find red velvet cake appetizing at all):

<good-natured sarcasm>Yes, of course you CAN cover a red velvet cake with fondant, just as you CAN cover a loaf of gingerbread with strawberry jam BC, or a strawberry marble cake with turkey gravy. And presumably, the fondant-covered red velvet cake will turn out better than my somewhat outlandish examples.</good-natured sarcasm>

Maybe a better question (and one that I think has been answered here) would have been "Does fondant play well with red velvet cake," or even, "what happens if you cover a red velvet cake with fondant."
