Impress your party guests with a wedge of fondant-covered cake covered in polka dots.  We love this cake for baby showers or bridal parties.  To get the best results, you’ll want to use a Wilton fondant smoother.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Buttermilk Breakfast Cake according to recipe directions, omitting the brown sugar-cinnamon step and baking in 2 (9-inch) cake pans instead of a Bundt pan.

  • Spread 1 cup strawberry frosting between layers. Spread white frosting in a thin layer (crumb coat) to top and sides of cake making sure surfaces are very smooth, filling in any wholes or gaps with frosting.

  • Microwave fondant on HIGH in 30 second intervals until softened and pliable.  Roll out on a smooth surface dusted lightly with cornstarch to ¼-inch thickness. Follow package directions for applying fondant to cake.  Decorate cake with pastel colored wafer candy using small daps of white frosting to help secure candies to fondant.
