I prefer the taste of buttercream, but I would bring this picture to your baker and see what he/she says.

I remember a cake person telling me that if you care more about how the cake looks get fondant but if you care more about the taste get buttercream.  I’m buttercream all the way!

I’m sure they could do buttercream with that. Buttercream is my preferance, and I love that cake!

I love buttercream and you’d be suprised what bakers can do with buttercream. This is a close up of my cake (not ruffles but the petals kind of are)…all of it was buttercream (and yummy!) So I vote buttercream and see if you baker and replicate that ruffle look you want.

Hippos:  that looks amazing! Buttercream can do that?

On another note, I’m more like a cream cheese frosting type of girl 😀

Another #1 for buttercream! I feel like fondant is such a waste since hardly anyone eats the stuff.

Not standard buttercream, but Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Or German Buttercream. They’re both incredibly superior in flavor and texture to plain ol’ American Buttercream.
