Why don't you just cover in in fondant if it needs to be white and they want chocolate buttercream? I don't have a recipe for white chocolate buttercream sorry.

Don't be afraid of cake, make cake be afraid of what you will turn it into!

Oh ok, have you ever tried MMF? It doesn't taste like the fondant you buy.

Someone posted a method on another thread that should work for you in this situation. I can't remember who or where it was, but basically they said to cover the cake in chocolate buttercream, refrigerate it until the buttercream is firm and then do a thin layer of your desired colour (in this case, white) overtop. I have never done this, but it sounds like it would work. You might need to do a couple of layers of the white, refrigerating between layers.
