I liked to look in the baker's store window and examine the array of different frostings on display.
While butter cream frosting has been one of the most widely used wedding cake frostings, you cab opt for almost any variety of frostings and fillings.
Draping Effect: The use of certain frostings to create draping effect, appearing as swags of ribbons, or other designs adds an elegant touch.
Cream cheese, buttercream, marzipan, and flavored frostings are big hits.
Frostings that need to be refrigerated, like cream cheese, should not be used in spring/summer outdoor wedding receptions.
Your cake baker can recommend fillings that go with your cake choice and frostings that will work for the design you choose.
