She wants a BC , 3 tiered with 2 flamingo characters on top. They want the cake to be the center piece. I'm very hesitate to do this for her. Any suggestions on what I could do to make it work? TIA

If it is outside, I would definately get away from BC. I would move more towards Fondant. Is there a theme to this party? It would help to know to help with ideas.

She wants to do a Luah(?) theme with two 3d flamingo figures on top. If you don't use BC what would you use to hold the fondant on the cakes? TIA

She wants flamingos and it's a luau theme???? I've been to Hawaii quite a few times and never once have I seen a flamingo at a luau

You could do ganache under the fondant instead of butter cream. It wouldn't soften as much outside.
