I have a wedding cake due this weekend....white with navy blue scroll work and dots. I'm worried because it has been very hot here and did I mention it will be a outside wedding... So should I use buttercream or royal icing for the scroll work and dots....the cake will be iced in buttercream. Will the royal icing bleed?

Thanks,

I personally would stick with an all shortening buttercream. I think if it is all shortening and it crusts well, it will hold up okay.

Agree with Trixie...all shortening is the way to go!

Speaking from experience, I'd go with an all-shortening buttercream, too.

I would do the scroll work in buttercream. I have read that you can't put royal icing on buttercream because it might not hold up with all the grease.

Do buttercream on buttercream. I use Sugarshack's recipe and did several piped cakes this summer (one in deep eggplant purple) and it held up perfectly.
