I have seen the recipe in the recipe box and it says you roll it out like fondant. Is this true? I have never seen this technique before. Does it look like fondant covered cakes? Does it taste good?

Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

Do you apply it the same as fondant to the cake, or is there a certain technique?
I'd love the recipe.

I use the recipe in the recipe section here. I find it easier to roll out while its slightly chilled and on a non stick mat. Then I flip the mat with the RBC on it over the cake and then peel the mat off.

Several of my cake in my pictures are made with RBC.

The small white wedding cake, the 2 tier Hannah Montana, The Littlest pet shop with the dots and the Linus cake are a few.

It has become my standard now.

yes, you do need a layer of buttercream underneath it.

I ditto the method above....
It is much like the application of fondant - - - but a MUCH better taste.
I've made several cakes with it like the one in my thumbnail here... also the treasure chest, pink & brown cake (first stacked), and some others.

good luck.

It's also great on cookies.
