I want to use this buttercream, but I'm not sure if I just mix everything together at the same time, if anything needs to be heated.... No clue... Can someone help??? I am going to wait until the morning to make the buttercream for the cakes. Oh, and while I'm posting this... It is good to use crusting buttercream with MMF/Fondant??? Or is there another recipe I should use???

2 lbs PS
1/4 c flour
2 T cornstarch
1 t salt
2 T meringue powder
1 c vanilla flavored coffee creamer

3 T butter flavor

Crusting buttercream is perfect for MMF. I've never made this recipe, but I usually cream the shortening with the flavorings and liquids - then add the dry ingredients last (sifted together) and mix on low until smooth. Should work for this recipe - except you might want to add the corn syrup last.

I haven't seen this recipe before and don't want to steer you wrong so by best advise would be to PM MacsMom and ask her directly. As for the fondant ? - yes you can use it with crusting b/c.
