Can fondant be placed over caramel frosting?

post #1 of 5

Want to make a yellow cake with caramel frosting but decorate using fondant. Is caramel to soft to support the fondant. Tks.

probably too soft

 

just depends on the exact caramel and the exact decor and placement

 

usually caramel frosting is pretty soft though

 

so if you just put something on top and did a bottom border--probably would be fine

 

but if you decorate the sides it might slide

 

and why not test it

 

make some caramel and put some decor in it and see what happens--it might break it down--maybe maybe not

 

if the caramel comes out more like candy than icing should be fine

 

if it comes out like icing...

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

Thanks bunches for your reply!!!

I will try tomorrow but didn't want to waste the ingredients(sp) if it was a known no. The only deco will be rhinestone ribbon along the bottom 2 tiers of the cake.

If you have problems with the sides, you could always use the caramel as a filling and on top for the flavor with your regular on the sides.

It depends on the type of recipe you make for the caramel frosting. I make mine from scratch. If it is the poured tpye of caramel icing you may have a problem. If it is a recipe that requires powder sugar and it whips up like frosting, you might have a better chance of it working. Also make sure your fondant decorations are not real thick. Thinner, smaller decorations may work a lot better. I hope everything works out well!
