I have never done this or used fondant, but I have been doing some research and hope I can get some helpful tips. I am planning on making my sons first birthday cake in a couple months and I want to make it perfect, which is how I am with everything! I want to use fondant so I can make a striped Tigger cake. Can I use store bought icing and fondant? I would like to limit my first tries to just decorating if possible. If so which are the best (by the way it is in FL and will be hot and humid and the party is outside). I read a couple threads about not putting the cake in the fridge if it is hot and humid, so are the better icings and fondant to use in these conditions? I am going to be doing at least one (probably more trial runs). Also, I have been making my past few cakes with applesauce instead of oil (to try and be a little healthier) which makes them super moist, would this not be good if trying to use fondant? Thank you so much for any advise and sorry it is so lengthy!!!!!
