    I've heard that you get tinted fondant without marizapan on fruit cakes? Something about the cake bleeds through?

    Would marshmallow fondant do that too? how could I stop it?

    If you do marshmallow didn't thats all I'd need to put on a fruit cake?

    I have a few ideas for decorating just hope my lack of artistic skills can portray my vision onto the cake!


    Sorry for the 100 questions I an just learning! I really appreciate the help!

    I have no idea about the bleeding, if it does it or how to stop it if it does. sorry.

    You should brush the cake with sugar syrup or a non lumpy jam to help the icing stick to the cake. Other than that you shouldn't need anything else.

    You can use buttercream icing usually to smooth top of cake and is a great surface to put fondant on.

    For fruit cake I'd recommend a smooth fruit jam or jelly.

    If you seal the cake with another form of icing before putting the fondant on it won't bleed. Or if your cake isn't sitting very long it shouldn't bleed. Citrusrain's lemon icing sounds like a good idea for fruit cake.
