    Fondant I love the smooth finish look on cakes...I really dont like fondant but I want the cake to look nice in pictures and hold together if it gets a little warm in the lodge

    Marshmallow fondant with touches of buttercream decorations. If it's made it it's like eating marshmallow fluff and I like the smooth look. I am also thinking of a s'more or chai flavor for our fall wedding in which the marshmallow would be great with.

    I've had excellent homemade maple - flavored fondant before. But I know generally fondant is less tasty, I'll most likely have a delicious buttercream frosting instead. Smiley smile

    Buttercream for sure. Fondant is just gummy to me and inedible.

    Buttercream, because you can add texture to the cake easily. Tt's simple and it's tastier than frosting, which I find sickly sweet.

    Buttercream all the way. I do have to say though that our bakery has some surprisingly good fondant.

    Buttercream for sure! I had fondant once when I was younger and didn't really like it. I had some recently and was definitely happy with our choice of buttercream.

    I like the way fondant looks, and I don't mind the taste, but know most people don't like it lol. There is some buttercream under the fondant but I don't want to pay extra for fondant knowing people aren't going to eat it lol.
