You should probably do fondant, because those colors are going to take a lot of food coloring if you use buttercream and no chocolate icing.

Edited to add: With that heat, I wouldn't do it unless it was fondant, the buttercream will melt no matter what you do. I'd tell her that it's fondant or nothing.

I agree, definitely fondant. I also suggest airbrushing if you can with your design. A lot less color and a lot less work.

Tell her in that heat she's going to be an icing-running-off-the-cake girl and she might change her mind.
