This page helps wade through some of the cake lingo that will allow you to order exactly the goody you want!
TIER: Each tier consists of 2 layers. A tier might also be refered to as a "level".
TORTE: Another word for layer. Each tier is a double torte unless otherwise noted.
BUTTERCREAM: AHHHHH!!!! Pure bliss! This is the icing I use on each cake (even if it is covered in fondant). ALWAYS made with real butter ! YUMMO! A buttercream finish does not have fondant placed over it.
FONDANT: A sugar dough that is placed over a cake after it has been iced in buttercream. Fondant leaves a very smooth finish. It can also be used to create figures, cake accents and other decorative objects. All of my fondant is homemade and made fresh for your cake!
GUMPASTE: Harder than fondant and is typically used for flowers or lettering.
ROYAL ICING: A hard icing used as glue and also tops my cookies. Royal icing is delicious and sets up hard after it dries.... somewhat like a candy.
I hope this helps! If you need further explanation or don't see the term you are looking for, please contact me!
