    We had red velvet so it was cream cheese. I usually prefer whipped or mousse filing because it’s light and less sugary than buttercream.

    @smarie13:  BUTTERCREAM!

    Frosting layers are so much better than fruit or mousse filling, I think.

    I like buttercream frosting, but mousse I think would be a better filling since it’s a bit lighter and fluffier. Too much frosting can be a bit intense.

    I’m pretty sure we had mousse filling…raspberry and lemon layers.   I think buttercream would be a bit heavy, tbh.

    I had french cream, it was delicious.

    I would choose mousse, though.

    Buttercream!  (I really dislike discovering mousse or flavored fillings in classic wedding cake.  Of course, classic wedding cake is my very favorite kind of cake.

    Mousse. With weddings, guests typically get a lot of food before they get to the cake, therefore buttercream can be a bit heavy. Buttercream is great for frosting; mousse is light and it is great if you want flavored fillings other than a simple chocolate or plain buttercream. Either way.. Cake is cake and I LOVE it all! 😛

    @smarie13:  it also depends: if you have stacked tiers you would rather use buttercream for the bottom tier because it’s firmer and has enough stability, while mousse is too soft for a bottom tier, but is fine for top tiers.. I’ve made a lot of cakes and had to learn this the hard way 😉
