Sorry if this is a silly question icon_razz.gif

Is rolled icing more like fondant than buttercream as far as taste and texture?

Thank you!!!

Thanks Cakepro! The description made it sound like there was a big difference.

Actually, there is a difference. Look for the recipe for rolled BC and then for a recipe for Marshmallow Fondant. They're both applied the same way, but rolled BC is not stretchy.

Yes, fondant and rolled buttercream are two different icings.

However, when one hears the term "rolled icing" it refers specifically to fondant.
