In Australia, they put a sugar syrup underneath. I've never tried it, but you could look it up. Otherwise, in our Wilton class, apricot jam was suggested.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck!

Use the recipe for bettys buttercream in the recipe section. Its just like the buttercream recipe I have used for years. Everyone loves it!

I'd go with buttercream made with all crisco. That's the basic recipe I use anyway.

ok so I can just double the crisco and leave out the butter from my orignal recipe?
Now I have another problem I have no butter flavoring? Will a little extra vanilla make up for that?
Oh another question (I'm full of those today) do yall think butterscotch filling will go good with a chocolate cake? Thank yall for all your help!
