    I think vanilla buttercream would be the safer choice just incase one of your guests is lactose intolerant.

    I love cream cheese icing. Either one would taste great.

    I’d think vanilla buttercream would taste better with the white cake/lemon filling.  If the lemon filling is on the sweet side, the cream cheese might be too sweet.

    Is there anyway you can taste it with both options and decide what you like best?

    If not, my vote is vanilla buttercream

    Vanilla buttercream would be popular with me. 🙂

    I think you will be safe with either one. My first thought was to go with the vanilla buttercream, but this is a special day, so I think it should be a little more special, so I voted for the cream cheese. We are having a layer of lemon cake and we chose marionberry cream cheese mousse for the filling. I like them both equally. What does your Fiance think; maybe he can be the tie breaker 🙂

    @Mrs.LetsGoPens: i’m pretty sure buttercream is dairy, just FYI…

    It depends on if you’re having fondant on top of the icing — a lot of bakers do NOT recommend using cream cheese icing as the “show” layer because it tends to melt much easier and not hold shape as well as buttercream.
