    We were married July 25th 2018. My cake was pretty standard in terms of flavors. The top and bottom tier was yellow cake with buttercream filling. The middle tier was a marble cake with chocolate mousse. It was delicious! The look of the cake is exactly what I had described. It was just perfect!

    Yeah. I hate it too. I don’t even want to work with it.

    Disney uses Carma Massa Ticcino fondant, a top-quality brand that tastes like marshmallow. But they also remove the fondant before they serve your wedding cake, and there's a nice thick layer of buttercream underneath.

    For those that use their own cake topper...how do you get it to the bakery team? Do you mail it? We have some that we want on the cake and made note of it in the inspiration photo to send to the team, but not sure how we'll go about sending the toppers ahead of the wedding day

    You put it in the bins of wedding stuff that you deliver to your planner at Franck’s a few days before the wedding, and they give it to the pastry team to put on the cake.

    I posted in here earlier about my vintage Epcot wedding cake! As it turns out, it would be a bit too intricate to do without having a styrofoam cake and a LOT of money to spend. So, I re-sketched something simpler and this is what I came up with! I'll absolutely post the pics once the big day comes :)

    Was the buttercream really buttery or more "sweet". Do they have different ty[es of buttercreams to chose from?

    I like the outside of the cake with the simple ears

    Walt Disney World uses a more sugary buttercream recipe, like you'd find on supermarket cakes. Disneyland uses Chantilly buttercream, which is more buttery. You could try asking for Chantilly buttercream at WDW and see what they say.
