Icing 101

In WeddingPedia by weddingLeave a Comment

Icing – refers to the covering of the cake.

The most common choices for wedding cakes are the following:

  • Buttercream – the icing that is soft and creamy in texture but may not be the right choice for outdoor weddings where heat is a factor
  • Fondant – the icing that is clay-like in consistency, can be molded, and has a better sense of durability even in outdoor events.
  • Foam icing – such as meringue or marshmallow icing

There are other types of icing such as ganache (usually for chocolate cakes), royal icing, flat icing, whipped cream icing, and cream cheese frosting.
