I'm curious, what do you normally put between the cakes and the fondant? What do you normally fill the cakes with?

I have not made either of those buttercreams, I normally make an IMBC, but Indydebi's has gotten lots of rave reviews and she is a decorator par excellance, so if I had to choose another BC to make, I'd go for her's.

I don't put any filling. For an ex: I make 6 by 3 & Brush Brandy Syrup Or other Flavor. That's How I was Taught, I never try to do the filling. I should Try & see. Is always a 1st. Thanks for your Respond. thumbs_up.gif

Filling isnt difficult, even if you use the syrup on the outside to make the fondant stick, you could still put a filling between the layers.

My vote is for IndyDebi's recipe as well, I use a variation of hers and my customers LOVE. It crusts well too.
