If I remember my classes right, this is the basketweave. I would think the problem with using SMBC or IMBC is that you won't be able to whip it before using. Unless I guess you whip it, then walk right out the door. I hated the class buttercream, but I used 1/2 butter in mine, which makes it tastier. You could have a melting issue, but I didn't find mine to be a problem.

Can you take a cake circle and class buttercream for practicing before applying any basketweave to the cake?

Then, have your mbc ready to use in a bag that you carry in a small cooler....maybe with one lunchbox sized cool pak. That way it doesn't get overly warm before you're ready to use it but you stll have the other to practice with...maybe?

If you cut the shortening and replace some of it with butter, it will taste better. When I did my class, I flavoured it mocha and had a brown basket instead. I rarely stuck with the "proper" cake. My instructor was pretty cool with the different ideas we all had.

I used 1 oz of semi sweet chocolate, melted and instead of vanilla & water to thin my icing, I used strong coffee (make sure it's cool). It was a hit - I used the cake as a birthday cake for a friend and a year later got a request from some for the exact same icing!
