What is Fondant Frosting?
frosting is a sugar dough that is applied to the surface of a
cake to make it very smooth, almost porcelain like. It does go
over the buttercream frosting, so that if your guests do not prefer
the fondant, they can simply peel it back and eat the frosting
underneath. We offer wedding cakes in both buttercream and fondant
frostings, and we recommend that you sample both if you come in
for a cake tasting.
you bring us a picture of a cake done in fondant, but want it
to look like buttercream, please keep in mind it will not look
the same. The only way to achieve a flawless finish is through
using fondant. Buttercream will show spatula marks, and air bubbles,
and is also affected by heat and humidity. If you choose a buttercream
wedding cake for the summer months, it must be placed in a venue
that has a cool, air conditioned enviroment. We do not do buttercream
wedding cakes for outdoor weddings. We typically do not do gumpaste
or sugar flowers on buttecream wedding cakes, fresh flowers only.
