You've all suggested that i use the Mel Roller method to ice a cake smooth. I did a search on CC and it suggested Crusting Butter Cream. Does it still taste good?

Of course it does. What type of bc do you typically use? I only use a crusting one.

Depends on the recipe, of course, but the outside of the icing crusts ... the inside is still nice and soft and delish!

I have always used the Wilton BC recipe. Tastes great and never lets me down. But I am going to make a practice cake using dummies soon and want to get the "fondon't" look (lol) but do not wish to compromise the taste.

Taste is subjectiveicon_smile.gif What tastes good to me might not to you.
There really isn't much difference between cursting and non cursting b'cream.
Non crusting usually is creamier.

UltimateCakes: If you are going to make dummy cakes why do you care what it tastes like??? Who is going to eat it? icon_smile.gif
There are soooooooo many great recipes out there why don't you try o ne or two....Wilton's BC is not the top of the line.

Personally, I think the Wilton recipe is rather... ummm... not so tasty. I guess it's a matter of taste. There are several crusting recipes here. I know many swear by Indydeb's recipe. I use one by a lady called Serious_Cakes, that I've made twice now and I'm a big fan! The taste is excellent, the texture is smooth and creamy, and it forms a lovely crust. I am looking forward to baking my next cake and trying the Viva method on a big scale. Did it on cupcakes last weekend and it was GREAT!
