Can I cover a chocolate cake with white fondant?

Covering A Chocolate Cake In White Fondant. I use a crust coat of white buttercream and to make sure the dark color doesn't show through I roll the fondant to no less than 1/3" thickness. If you want the fondant to have a chocolate flavor then use the LorAnn chocolate flavored oil.

How do you attach fondant to chocolate?

Use prepared royal icing or make your own by mixing water, meringue powder and confectioner's sugar. Put the icing in a piping bag and squeeze out a small amount onto the back or bottom of your modeling chocolate decoration.
