While we are as careful as we can be and sanitize well, there is always the possibility that traces of these ingredients remain. If you or any of your guests are sensitive to these ingredients we cannot guarantee that traces do not remain and we suggest making alternate arrangements.

Fondant is a playable sugar dough used to cover cakes. Cakes covered in fondant allow for textures to be imprinted to the cake. Fondant gives a more round finish on the edge of the cake. Most decorative elements and trims are made of fondant.

Buttercream is soft, spreadable consistency. It can be smoothed over the cake giving the edges a shaper finish or can be swept on to create a swirled texture. It is sometimes piped on the base of the cake as trim. Buttercream if often used as filling between the cake layers.
