Expecting 100+ heat for this June wedding. Besides fondant can anyone recommend a heat tolerant frosting?
No idea. I will watch this though to see what others say.
I have to say...I love how you put it in the disaster forum Cake and that heat has got to be scary!
The way I see it I am trying to avert a disaster. This is an outdoor wedding and although the cake will be in the shade under a tent...hot is hot. I have always avoided buttercream because I have seen too many "land slide" disasters. I usually use a product called Pastry Pride non dairy topping. It is very resiliant but I fear if the temperature goes to high it too could have issues. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
many decorators on c/c love indydebi's b/c recipe. She swears it stands up to very hot heat.. also, sharon zambito on this site lives in louisiana and her b/c stands up to heat. You can see her making hers on youtube. Hers is very tasty also.She uses hi-ratio shortening in hers. you can also use hi-ratio shortening in indydebi's. both of these recipes are on this site. hth. A lot of the decorators here, use theses recipes for that purpose also, when they have wedding cakes during the summer, for outside weddings, etc.
