I had tasted fondant before our wedding and hated it. The lady who made our cake told us she made her own and it tasted like buttercream frosting. She let us taste it at our tasting and it was amazing. I loved our cake. It looked flawless and tasted amazing.

I personally think it’s just prettier, but it tastes like crap. We’re going buttercream all the way. Yum!!!

Fondant is prettier…but we opted for taste since I personally never notice people’s wedding cakes 🙂

Fondant is smoother, but it tastes NASTY. So the choice is looks vs. taste. And if looks cost more… well I got marzipan, so I got both. Marzipan probably costs more, too, though.

I say NO to fondant also. My aunt made our cake and the original picture that I showed her was of fondant icing and she asked if that is what I wanted and I said “No” because of reading many posts about this on wb, and she said that she was glad because doesn’t like to do fondant and it tastes nasty. I’ve included a picture that I showed her, sorry the picture is grainy, I took it from the tv:)
and the picture of our cake that she made for us:)

The look of Fondant is beautiful but the taste is terrible. You want your guests to enjoy the cake, not pick it apart. I have seen a lot of beautiful weddings cakes made WITHOUT fondant and personally I think it’s the way to go. I look at decisions like that with the guests in mind as well. Whatever you do decide, I’m sure it will be perfect!

Fondant doesn’t taste as good, and I’ve heard you’re not actually supposed to eat it (although it is edible). It does look pretty, though; it will give you a smoother background for any designs you want on your cake.
We just went with buttercream. Our cake wasn’t super pretty, but it was yummy!

i would just go with buttercream. i like the non-prefect homemade look vs. the perfect smoothness of fondant. i guess it really depends on your taste and theme of your wedding.
