I have a recipe for it but have never used it...I haven't tried fondant either since I haven't ever had a need for it and all my cake decorating friends hate how it tastes...

Is it difficult to use (rolled bc or fondant) ? What kind of tools do I need to get started experimenting with either one?

If you do a search for RBC, there have been many discussions about it lately. Here is one, but there are plently more... Oh Jan, are you around to do your linking magic?!? icon_wink.gif

I just tried RBC for the first time today. Didn't really like working with it to cover a cake but the decorations were fine. It could be that I didn't have the correct consistancy. It did taste good though!

Just to add my two cents...I made some out of curiosity about two months ago. I covered some cookies with it. I thought it was OK for cookies but I would much rather use fondant. RBC is greasy, that's pretty much my issue with it. I couldn't imagine covering a cake in it. All in all though, it was worth making and perhaps I will use it again for cookies because everyone who ate them was amazed.

I have only tried it once and also found it to be very greasy!! Would much rather use Fondant. Just my opinion though. HTH

I tried the rolled buttercream and it was very, very greasy and grainy. There was no smooth, ceramic-like finish. After I discovered MMF, I have never gone back. Granted, making it will give you guns icon_wink.gif but it's worth it!

i just made some MMF and added some butter flavored crisco, to get it to come off of the sides of the bowl in my mixerm and i guess that i made my own version of RBC... which i didnt know existed until some one told me on another forum post...
its not creamy at all...
all i did was make MMF and add crisco little by llittle...
