Hi there! I'm new to cake decorating and wanted to try my hand at fondant. I'm going to be making the fondant myself. I was wondering what types of cake were the best for covering in fondant. I assume very moist cakes don't work as well as a firmer cake. Is this true? Any recipes? Also I know you have to use something between the cake and the fondant to make it stick. I've seen most people using a buttercream frosting. How much do you use? Is it a very sparse amount just to get it to stick or do you you frost it the same as you would a cake that you weren't going to cover with fondant? Also say you are sticking fondant stars or polka dots to your already fondant covered cake, what do you use to stick them on? Is it the same with figures? Thanks a bunch for any advice you might have!!
