Is a Buttercream Cake Right For You? September 10, 2015

Is a Buttercream Cake Right For You?, Palo Alto, California

With the variety of cakes, cupcakes, pastries, etc. ever increasing, planning dessert for a wedding, birthday or special celebration can be an intimidating task. Most cakes that you see in magazines or TV shows today are iced in fondant, but buttercream is a classic frosting that is making a comeback. 

Buttercream cakes are an increasingly popular choice because they provide a luxurious, rich flavor, a creamy texture, and it is easy to mold buttercream into a variety of patterns, shapes, and designs. A skilled baker can make buttercream look just as beautiful as fondant. When you choose this cake style, you will not only enjoy the taste, but the visual aspect as well.

Buttercream cakes and buttercream flowers are becoming particularly popular for wedding and celebration cakes. This is because buttercream has a wonderful texture and can easily achieve a rustic, classic or modern look with beautifully textured designs, hand-piped flowers and leaves and elegant scrolls and ruffles. For instance, a naked cake or a textured tiered cake in buttercream adorned with a variety of buttercream flowers makes for a beautiful presentation for less formal celebrations. And an ombre or watercolor design tinted to perfection is the right choice for a fun and casual event such as a baby shower, 1st birthday or christening.

Pink Posy will be releasing new lines of buttercream cakes in the fall with a new bakery and cafe opening, so stay tuned for pictures and announcements!
