I have been using the recipe here on CC for buttercream for FBCT and it tastes so great I started using it to ice the whole cake too, problem is it doesn't crust well at all!
Do you use one icing for the FBCT and a different on e to ice the cake? Can you please tell me what icing you use for FBCT?
It just depends on what kind of cake I'm doing and how I'm decorating. But if I'm using fondant accents I don't use the same bc, I switch to a creamier inside and crusting outside. I don't really have a favorite bc since I don't even eat it I just take it all off, I know I'm weird, I LOOOOOVVVEE whipped cream that's why, you can give me slice of cream with no cake and I'm happy.lol
I have one icing recipe and I use it for everything.
Me too. I use the same crusting buttercream for the FBCT and the whole cake.
I don't switch up either. One icing for it all!
I'm sorry, but what is FBCT? I know it's something-buttercream-something. All the different types of buttercream, I'm still trying to learn them all. Thanks!
Frozen Buttercream Transfer (FBCT). The tutorial on here is great, and I was really pleased with how easy it was. I used cream cheese icing, because I put my design on a carrot cake, and it worked just fine.
Same icing for all here too when icing in all bc! Makes things much easier. I also use indydebi's recipe. YUM!
The only time I don't is when making Chocolate BC. Then I use indydebi's for the FBCT and another recipe for the Chocolate.
Thanks everyone, I love my FBCT icing but it doesn't crust well at all so I am trying to decide what to do.
