Do any of you ever use any other type of frosting to decorate your cakes with besides buttercream? Not that I don't like buttercream, infact it's the only kind of frosting that I've ever made from scratch but I was just wondering if there any other kinds you can make that taste good but are still good for decorating? Thanks all!
There are numerous variations of 'buttercream' some that don't even include butter as an ingredient. Take a look in the recipe section, you will see many of the variations. You just have to try them to see which you like best. Everyone has a different favorite.
What kind of buttercream do you make? There are buttercreams with Crisco or High-ratio, buttercreams with all butter, or buttercreams that are half-butter and half-Crisco.
You have tons of options so just start trying!
