I just purchased Sugarshack's DVD called "Perfecting The Art of Buttercream"..........Thank you Sugarshack......this is the best video I've seen. She gives her recipe for fluffy smooth, no air bubbles BC icing. She describes every step in detail with closeup camera shots of how to make perfectly flawless icing, including making corners for square cakes using her techniques. She also shows how to use the diamond impression mat. I definitely would recommend this video to anyone that would like their cakes to be as flawless as hers................Her website is

There are alot of great BC tips here on CC, but this DVD is good because of how you can see each step at a close range.......

I think I would like to get one too! I think I have gotten fondant down, but buttercream is still difficult for me. If I could do bc half as good as sharon, I would be thrilled!

I just received her DVD and it is AWESOME. I am a person that needs visual aid so watching it and seeing up close the best way to get smooth buttercream is so helpful. Also I wanted to say that her customer service is excellent and shipping is really fast. I had a glitch in my computer that caused my account to be chaged twice. I e-mailed to let her know what was happening and she responded right away. Such customer service is rare these days and it was wonderful the way she put me at ease while assuring me that she would watch out for a dupilcate order and take care of it on her end. SHARON YOU ARE THE BEST !!! thumbs_up.gif

Would this video work for SMBC?

I purchased mine last Thursday (10/1icon_cool.gif and I run to the mailbox everynight to see if it has arrived. Not yet, but hopefully today. Anyway...Sharon, if you are here, do you have plans to possibly make another dvd on other techniques that you are so incredibly awesome at (like your fluffy ribbon roses and leaves...hint, hint, wink, wink).

I think that would be great for those of us that live no where near you to take your classes and I, for one, will pay for any that you come up with.

Thank you so much for taking time to do this for us.

The DVD sounds good but I'd rather just go be her slave for a day and watch her in action. But that's just me!!! Your work is awesome Sharon!!

I am so glad you like the DVd and it is helping you. I know how frustrating BC can be ( BEEN THERE)

as far as future DVds, yes I do have plans to do more and I am accepting suggestions as to what you guys want to see next. Please email suggestions to me at

If you want to get on my email list re: upcomg classes, please also email me with that request. I am trying to get a class together for spring. Also include in the email what you guys would like me to teach !

Thank you ALL!

Perhaps dvd's that cover the same things that you teach in your classes???Just a thought. Anything will get my vote (and my credit card) icon_biggrin.gif

Please let us know when you have something new coming to the surface and again, thanks for everything.
