What is the better choice for decorating cakes, buttercream that crust's or not? I have a great recipe for buttercream but it's on the soft side and make's it hard smooth sides of cakes. Any thougts?
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
