Buttercream Cakes Have made a Comeback!!

I am so happy to see buttercream cakes finally making a comeback! 

When I apprenticed at Dufflets many years ago. All of the wedding cakes were buttercream finishes. No Fondant in sight. I feel so lucky to have learned the buttercream basics right from the get go. 

I am hearing more and more couples tell me in consults that many bakeries have warned them against getting a buttercream cake, usually saying they won't hold up as well as fondant cakes. This only holds true for outdoor weddings. A buttercream cake kept on display in an air conditioned room will hold up just as well as a fondant covered cake. The only draw back I see working with buttercream finishes is that your limited to some of the design elements, especially when you want a really colourful cake. 

Buttercream cakes are some of my favourite ones to work on.. They look beautiful, they are yummy, rustic and relaxed. 

Here are a few of my favourite buttercream cakes from this season.
