Would love some advice Want to ice a wedding cake , very simple, just white with a ribbon. Do I go in this order:apricot jam, almond icing and then white fondants icing
Many thanks look forward to some advice

or you could use a butter icing ie brandy butter. I quite often use this on fruit cakes as it is less sweet than the almond and white.

You can also just use boiled and cooled water.Have done this on many occassions when I have run out of apricot jam or wanted something less sweet.Always use it (water) sparingly between the almond icing and the top fondant.Has served me well for many, many years.
