Fondant is the traditional finish for some classic Austro-Hungarian tortes. Even many professional bakers find handmade fondant a bother, and buy theirs from a supplier. For the home cook, this easy version, based on one from Susan Purdy’s A Piece of Cake, does very nicely. Like the classic, it must used while barely warm.
