    Buttercream is just so yummy! But ours will be fondant, which isn't as bad as most people make it out to be. So yum either way. Smiley heart

    Buttercream all the way! Fondant is pretty, but it tastes like play dough to me

    Buttercream is a must for the design we want, plus fondant hurts mf FH's teeth.

    Buttercream ALL THE WAY!!! Fondant is just... nice for decorative purposes. Doesn't taste good. WAY too sugary.

    I like how buttercream tastes but fondant is so clean and pretty. I'd go with fondant.
