I am making a baby shower cake for a friend...
She said that she doesn't want fondant and doesn't like buttercream?!?!
Any ideas for me?
I was thinking maybe white chocolate ganache? Any other ideas would really help!
What about the whipped topping type? Rich's? I've seen it talked about a lot here though I've never tried it myself. Would love an excuse to tho!
Did you ask your friend what she DOES like? That would be helpful!
Ganache is good idea. Also, I wonder if she'd like MMF. It generally does taste better than traditional fondant.
What if you compromise by icing the cake with fondant or bc (whichever you think would work best for her cake), but fill it with your friend's favorite filling...?
Maybe try an IMBC / SMBC - she's probably thinking of a regular American buttercream made with powdered sugar - the IMBC/SMBC have a completely different taste and texture.
What about glazes?
How about cream cheese frosting, or even just a basic whipped cream (you can flavor that however you like)?
Royal icing? I was going to say fresh cream but Babycakes bet me to it
