I just made my very first batch of rolled buttercream.

Can I use it just like fondant?
Can I use it to make decorations like fondant?

I also made candy clay for the first time,just for experimenting.

Is it supposed to be kinda wet looking?

How long do I let it dry before I wrap it up?

Both of these are for experimenting with on DH's fathers day cake with.

Not so much the candy clay, but the rolled buttercream is.

Thanx for any help. icon_wink.gif

Use the rolled buttercream just as you would fondant. You can cover a cake or use it for modeling and/or decorations. You can also use it on cookies. Candy clay is more for modelling but I guess you could cover a cake in it if you wanted to. Candy clay gets very hard when properly made and you have to work it in small pieces to get it usable after it sets up and tends to get very soft after you work with it. It can be hard to work with but is very tasty.

good luck!

Thank you.

That is what I thought about the rolled buttercream.

As for the candy clay,It is just for playing around with.

Since I was in the mood to experiment I thought I would check it out.

I didn't think you could cover a cake with it.Just want to add another dimmension to my cakes. icon_wink.gif

Hi
What's rolled buttercream? Well I see it's like fondant, but I never heard of it. Can I get the recipe?

I haven't tried the rolled buttercream icing, but I have a question before I try it. I know that crisco is vegetable shortening, but I'm wondering if I use the 'butter-flavored" crisco if I can omit the butter flavoring.
Thanks for the info.

Mimi -- I've used the butter crisco for BC before and still felt that butter flavoring needed to be added. Something else to consider, the butter crisco is yellow, so it tints your colors in a different way.

I have used rolled buttercream for many of my cookie decorations and have had rave reviews on the flavor..I did try covering a cake and found it to tear easily..candy or modeling clay is something I will have to try in the near future..rolled buttercream is wonderful to use..happy icing!
