Im preparing a very soft tender cake for covering with fondant. I need it to be really smooth but I also don't want the icing to be too heavy on the cake. I'm not familiar with ganache can I use a coating of royal icing?

    Depending on how soft the cake is, you might want to chill it down before frosting, so the cake is more firm when covering it – Joe Aug 16 '19 at 15:52
  • Have you ever used royal icing on a cake before? If it's too thick, it might be hard to spread, but if it's too thin, it will get absorbed into the cake. – kayk Sep 17 '19 at 19:15
