I am making my brother's wedding cake and the wedding is in August...high 90's and no humidity. I'm pretty new at cake decorating and I just wanted to know what is better for the heat....buttercream or fondant? Or do you have any other suggestions? Does fondant melt or droop? Thanks for your help!
Seriously? Fondant with a little BC under it will be fine, but oh how I hate outdoor cakes.
if you can do fondant that would better handle the heat, Of course it is still sugar and sugar does melt.
If it's possible, leave the cake indoors. Maybe you could put it on a rolling cart (covered up of course) just have it out for the cake cutting so the pictures will match and then take it back inside to cut and have some helpers bring pieces out to the guests.
Thank you so much for the replies!!! This helps....going to do fondant!!
