Fondant Frosting

Paul asks…

When using a MM fondant do i still use the icing underneath?

Im making a 4th of July cake and its going to be my first fondant cake and i wanna go cheap for the first so is MM fondant going to need the icing underneath? Whats the best recipe you have for it?

Vicky answers:

Fondant will adhere to the cake without using icing underneath.  However, if you want a nice smooth appearance, you will need to use an icing underneath.  I think that a nice buttercream frosting woorks well.  I have also used a ganache under the fondant to get that nice smooth look.
