Team Fondant or Buttercream?

Because I feel like searching for pretty cakes today. I think a smaller 3 tiered one would be just nice in terms of practicality (face it, not much people will eat the cake and you’ll likely have leftovers) and large enough for a customised design to stand out.

So now the issue is – fondant icing or buttercream frosting? This impacts choice of vendor as some only do one type/strong in only one area etc.

Things to consider:

1) Cake appearance – fondant allows for more elaborate designs and clean lines because of smooth texture.

2) Cost – fondant is more costly than buttercream

3) Length and temperature of reception – fondant lasts longer because of its consistency

4) Taste – buttercream is much nicer because fondant tastes chewy and dry

I’m leaning towards team fondant as I mentioned earlier not much people will get to eat the cake anyway. I think its more important for it to look good and align with the decor!

But off course, there’s other options to consider like the traditional pulut kuning, cupcake, cakes in jar and macaron cakes too.

I am still undecided yet – so many talented bakers around!
