Michele Fosters fondant is really delicious. The recipe calls for butter and vanilla and I think if you ramped up the vanilla and maybe used some of that clear butter flavoring you might get something close to a bc flavor. HTH

Another option is rolled buttercream. I've not tried to cover a cake with it. I've only played around a bit with it-usually turning extra buttercream into rolled buttercream by adding corn syrup and powdered sugar. I guess its very soft and people say it can have a greasy appearance, but other people really like it. There's a recipe in the recipes section.

There's a new product called Fondarific (sp?), and they have a buttercream flavor. I just got some free samples in the mail, and it tastes pretty good. I haven't had a chance to "play" with it yet, to see how it works, but another friend of mine says that it is great to work with. Their website is www.fondarific.com- if I spelled the name right, anyway. BTW, I am not a member of the company. I promise!!!

The flavor on the fondant may help but I think you will find it is not always the flavor they don't like. It is the texture. Rolled buttercream to me....still has the texture of fondant. Not trying to sound negative but I think you should be aware.

i just did i cake covered and decorated in the rolled buttercream. It was a little oily at first but once i started to work with it and roll it out it was fine. And it taste great!!!! Now my Wilton Instructor told us last night that she learned in a new class last night that you can flavor fondant but the best way is to flavor it with the candy flavorings......she brought some chocolate fondant and it was TO DIE FOR!!!!!!! No for my rolled buttercream i use regular extracts and it turned out fine. Here's the pic of the cake i did.

Follow that link, click on the shopping cart, and there's an option for a 1lb sample with a shipping charge of $1.50.

I actually made some fondant over the weekend that tastes just like buttercream. All you have to do is make MMF fondant and flavor it with 1.5 tsp of butter flavoring (I used Wilton) and .5 tsp of vanilla. I also added about 1/4 tsp of salt to cut the sweetness. It's delicious and tastes just like buttercream. HTH

Pretty cake, atschnet! The last cake I made with fondant, most took the fondant off, but my mother was happy, she ate some of it and saved the other! I like the contrast of textures, and enjoy the fondant.

Thanks, TexasRose. Boy, that stuff is expensive, you get 2 lbs for about what you can pay for 5 lbs of Satin Ice. Not sure about even getting the sample, since I'm pretty sure I'd never order more than that!

mlharvill, I'll try your additions to MMF next time I make that. Thanks to you, too.
