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:

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.
