Hello fellow cakies!
I am making my mother in laws wedding cake for August. I have used fondant plenty of times and am confident in using it however my bride has a few other ideas up her sleeve! Instead of fondant she wants it to be covered in a buttercream, vintage style so not flat, all puffed up and flicky. In the photos she has given me it looks gorgeous, even dyed a nice ivory colour, very vintage chic. However I'm freaking out about it melting! I live 4 hours away so I know I will have to frost the cake at the venue however it's a winter wedding and they have a fireplace so will the cake need to be refrigerated until serving? Anybody know of any good recipes that won't melt? I have used one "fake" buttercream recipe which is just icing sugar, copha and vanilla. It just tastes too fake and fatty to me. I have attached a photo of what frosting she is talking about, please give me your suggestions and theories people!
Sorry for the novel ^^
