I can’t answer the other questions because if you have to give in for someone else paying, well, then you have to.  I don’t know what kind of fruit cake your Future Mother-In-Law is wanting but when I think fruit cake I think nasty, comes in a tin, mailed to relatives at Christmas who just throw it away!  I can’t imagine!

I’ve only talked to one baker so far and his selections were pretty limited on flavor so I’m not much help.

As for white icing:  it can be many things.  Fondant, cream cheese, buttercream, just to name a few.

That is something you need to ask your baker. Since you are talking about mud cake and fruitcake, I am guessing you live in Australia or NZ where those are common. Also in those areas, fondant is pretty much your only icing choice because that is what bakers are willing to make. Your flavor choices are dependent on what the baker is able and willing to fix for you. What do your guests like? That’s the important question to ask considering that most couples say they don’t get any part of the cake other than the bite that is served during the cutting. In the end, it’s not the mothers’ choice since it’s not their wedding. If the guests don’t like it, they won’t eat it and you’ll have wasted food and money.

Shop around and make sure to get tastings of their flavor options before you settle on anyone.

soo by fruit cake what do you mean?  Is this a British like fruit cake?  or like pound cake and rasperry filling?  Make sure if you’re saving the top tier it’s what YOU want since nobody will ever see or taste it but you.  Also if you’re not serving that tier make sure you still have enough pieces in the other tiers.

We hade french vanilla and espresso mouse filling with buttercream for all our cake!
