I prefer a non-crusting bc because I think it's MUCH easier to work with.

I prefer crusting buttercream. once it crusts I can smooth the cake with viva papertowel or a hot spatula. I just started using the Buttercream Dream recipe, found here on CC, and it is great.!

Hope that helps.

i prefer the buttercream that crust... cuz when it's crust you could work on the sides to make it smooth ..imo
