AI'm making a giant cupcake cake for a first birthday, and she's going to be having this cake outside (I believe just during the "cake smash" part) would the candy melt shell stand up to an 80-90° day? Or would fondant be a better option?

Please help :)

I would do fondant.  Candy melts will probably start sweating and perhaps melt off.

I agree with the fondant.  It would be easier to "smash" for the child too than candy melts wouldn't it?  I've not done anything in candy melts, so I'm unsure...

AThanks, I was thinking fondant too. I'm sure she won't even touch the bottom part. I was only thinking candy melts because I've heard it's much easier than using fondant on the ridges of the cake mold.

This is how you do the shell. I think presentation wise it looks amazing.
