    I think the issue with the taste of fondant has a lot to do with the type of fondant used… but usually there’s buttercream beneath, so people can always peel back the fondant and still get cake and icing.

    That having been said… it is more expensive, usually.

    What about doing a swiss dot pattern instead of the diamonds? Like this –> http://www.whippedbakeshop.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/product_zoom/swiss-dot-wedding-cake-main.jpg

    I like the idea of putting in the hot pink ribbon.

    I think it will look nice. I agree with the PP; there should be buttercream underneath of the fondant, so people can (and will) just peel it off.

    Don’t worry about the taste of the fondant.

    Yes it is gross, but older rellies usually love it because it is “traditional”, and younger people will just peel it off and eat the cake inside of it. Fondant is a kind of solid icing, so it will peel off people’s pieces if they don’t want to eat it.

    I really like your cake but the first cake, I like it a lot better aesthetically. I say you cant go wrong with either cake 🙂

    I think the first cake is really pretty (: and I know a lot of people who don’t like fondant but the fondant I’ve had was actually pretty good so I think it depends on who is making it. Plus it’s really easy to peel off as others have said (:

    Your poll is really confusing because I think it is in the opposite order of the photos in your post.

    Go for the fondant as long as it is in your budget and get buttercream underneath.

    Just fyi I think I voted for the wrong cake because you posted “cake 1″ & ‘cake 2” but in the opposite order of the pictures, then I saw the cakes.  Careful when looking at your poll results ’cause I don’t think I’m the only one!  lol  I was going to vote for the cake in the first picture until I read it was fondant.  That stuff is AWFUL and as a guest it would be more important to me that a cake tastes good than that it looks pretty.  Both cakes are gorgeous too, so I would vote for whichever one you could get without fondant.  Hope that makes sense?  Good luck!!!

    The first one gets my vote, I love it! But I’m afraid I also voted the wrong cake. Sigh…

    The first cake for sure! I too didn’t want fondant as I wanted buttercream, but even though we are getting married in winter we were told buttercream very rarely lasts. They can also do much less with buttercream decoration wise.

    So I very reluctantly tried the fondent and I liked it. I just asked them to put it on as thin as they can instead of 4 or so cm thick!
