Fondant is a time-tested staple of cake decorating. Rolled fondant, composed mostly of confectioner's sugar, a bit of shortening and water, coats the cake with a smooth elegant finish. It is often used to cover round, special-occasion layer cakes. Once applied to cake, fondant icing cannot be refrigerated. The condensation that results from refrigeration causes the icing to melt. A covered cake saver is an ideal storage container for a fondant-covered cake.

Tips and warnings

  • According to the cake-decorating company Wilton, if the cake contains filling that needs refrigeration, it should be iced with fondant.
