I love it.

Rolled Butter Cream

* 1 cup light corn syrup
* 1 cup shortening
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
* 2 pounds confectioners' sugar


DIRECTIONS

1. In a large bowl, stir together the shortening and corn syrup. Mix in the salt and vanilla flavoring, then gradually mix in the confectioners' sugar until it is a stiff dough. If you are using a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment. Otherwise, knead by hand. If the dough is sticky, knead in more confectioners' sugar until it is smooth. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
2. To use, roll out on a clean surface that has been dusted with confectioners' sugar until it is 1/8 inch thick or thinner if you can. Drape over frosted and chilled cakes and smooth the sides down, or cut into strips to make bows and other decorations.

I have never heard of this, But I'll give it a try sometime. Is the buttercream as plyable as fondant?

It has worked for me...you can add as much p-sugar as needed for the texture that you need...I covered my carved cake with it...and made the little animals with it...My family does not like the taste of fondant...but they love this...

I have a MMF recipe that I use and my family really likes it. Sometimes it's just nice to try new things. Thank you for posting the recipe that you use.
