Fondant or Buttercream?

The first thing you need to decide when choosing the perfect wedding cake is Fondant or Buttercream.

Buttercream is a more popular option offering a relaxed look which goes amazing with fresh flowers. It can be dressed up as a naked or semi naked cake, or include gold leaf, drips and even macarons.

Fondant is more traditional and offers a lot more options when it comes to the finer details such as different stencils.

In the Melbourne summer time fondant is the safer option, however with carefully planned delivery and keeping buttercream cakes in a cool area, they will be just fine.

We cannot thank Monique enough for our gorgeous wedding cake! Right from our initial meeting with Monique she catered for our needs with a design that we wanted. She has a huge range of flavours which we taste tested and her prices were straight forward and extremely reasonable. Monique is amazing at what she does, we ordered red velvet and our friends and family were commenting on just how delicious it was! I would highly recommend her.
