    The thing about fondant is that there are some that taste worse than others, and it will keep your cake very moist especially important for me since I live in a dry climate

    @Dsquared:A good baker will coat the cake in a simple syrup before frosting it with buttercream so it will stay moist that way too.

    We had a buttercream frosting and used ribbon.  No idea what they did to cut it, that was all done in the kitchen.  But we didn’t notice.

    Buttercream. Fondant is pretty but I personally don’t like the idea of all those ingredients going into the garbage. And most good bakers are able to work with it and make it look fantastic.

    Buttercream definitely tastes better and it can look really nice. Ours was buttercream and I loved the way it looked. I once had wedding cake with marshmallow fondant on it that didn’t taste TOO terrible.

    I went with the last option.  The fondant just falls away.  It’s like gift wrap.  There’s still yummy buttercream underneath, so you get the best of both worlds:  the lovely fondant look and the lovely buttercream taste.

    Hmm, I voted fondant before reading everyone’s posts. The buttercream cakes that are posted are beautiful! I am second-guessing our fondant cake! This will definitely be an upcoming conversation for Fiance and I!

    even with fondant, you have to spread buttercream between the cake and the fondant.  although many bakers nowadays do beautiful things with just buttercream.
