Hi, I am a fan of your show and I’m just 14 years old. I would like to know, what is the best cake to use when decorating with fondant?

Irene - from Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico

A firm textured cake, like pound cake, holds up best with Rolled Fondant icing. Yellow cake can also be used, but we don’t recommend using a light or soft cake, like Angel Food, if you plan on covering the cake with Rolled Fondant.
