Frosting Your Wedding Cake (Day #15)

When you finally decide to visit a cake designer to create the most photographed item at your reception, the wedding cake, there are some cake frosting/icing terms that you should know:

Whipped Cream.

Buttercream - a smooth, creamy icing that stays so its easy to cut. Can be used as a filling or for decorations.
Fondant - a sweet, elastic icing that's rolled with a rolling pin and draped over a cake forming a smooth, firm base for decorations.
Whipped Cream - a heavy cream that is sometimes used as a filling. If used as an icing, it's not recommended for hot weather.
Royal Icing -  is a thick paste made from egg whites and sifted icing sugar. This is the icing that is used to create beading, latticework, flowers and other creations that need to stay firm.

  1. Hey dear, Can you please tell me from where you have ordered this cake? I am asking this because it is looking really delicious and I want to have a similar well-presented and delicious cake for my party at New York event venues.
