I have lifelong distaste for buttercream frosting, and by that I mean buttercream made with lots of butter, which when refrigerated becomes hard like butter. My wedding is in just over 2 weeks in Los Angeles, and I haven't found a bakery yet that makes a non-buttercream frosting. In my research it seems like what I'm looking for might be "American Buttercream", made with butter, or "phoney" buttercream, made with shortening. I'm looking for a birthday cake like frosting, the kind that becomes crusty when left out.
Anyone know what I should ask for when I'm calling around?
I'm looking for a berry filled white cake, very simple, no designs, even a simple round would work.
