I just finished frosting a 6" wedding cake with the BC frosting and it seams a little dry. I used creamer for my liquid...my question is should I still use creamer to get some moisture in it or use something else?

What do you mean its dry?? If it feels dry to the touch, it is probably a crusting buttercream. It will have a paper thin layer that's dry, and then the rest will be nice and creamy....I wouldn't worry about it icon_smile.gif

It felt dry to the touch...it just wasn't as creamy as other recipes I've tried. I got into freak out mode and did add 1 tablespoon of creamer and it is turning out great. Thanks for your thoughts. 4 more tiers too go!!!
