Fondant vs Buttercream
I often get questions similar to this one regarding the difference between fondant & buttercream:
“Which one is do you recommend (fondant vs buttercream) based on appearance plus taste? I’m not sure what the difference is between fondant & buttercream. I believe the fondant looks better. Does it taste better too? I think the buttercream might be really sweet. Also, what would you do with the inside of the cake? Would there be filling?”
Fondant tastes sort of like marshmallows – it’s sweet. I always cover my cakes in vanilla buttercream first, and then put the rolled fondant on top – so you get the best of both worlds. Fondant looks really smooth which is why we use it a lot. Some people really like the taste, and those who don’t generally peel it off.
