Cakes by Tali asked:
Andric, I am so impressed with your talent. This cake is just SO perfect! I actually tried to make the exact same cake (no flower) and the yellow sides started to slide down :( Would you mind telling me what did I do wrong? I used chocolate buttercream before applying the fondant and it didn't hold it well, maybe the fondant was too heavy? I was so bummed and frustrated with this cake. So glad I found yours here! :)
Andirc answered:
Hi thank you :). I don't use buttercream because where i live is hot and humid, for this one i used white chocolate ganache, 3:1 ratio chocolate:cream. Now for the fondant, first I made a syrup like the one Planet cake suggest (100 g apricot jam and 100 ml of boiling water, whisk them then remove any lump if you want you can add some liquer)
