Rolled buttercream can taste more like actual buttercream, but it tends to be greasy.

Fondant, other than wilton, also tastes good.

I don't like RBC because I found it very greasy. I also don't think it dries that hard, so packaging might be a problem. I didn't think it tasted a thing like buttercream.

I use Satin Ice just because it is consistent every time, tastes very, very good, I don't have to make a mess of my kitchen, and I found a great place to buy it! (www.IntoTheOven.com where it is cheaper for me to pay for shipping than drive to my local supply shop).

I blend RBC together with MMF. I like it because the MMF takes the greasy away from the RBC and the RBC cuts down the chewy of the MMF. Dries just fine for packaging.

What is your recipe? (ratio of RBC to MMF?)
