Well, I had a bad day yesterday. i had 2 cakes and 3 dozen cupcakes to deliver... the temp was not hot (for once) but it was so humid. My 2 cakes MELTED in the car on the way to deliver them (buttercream icing). My mmf butterflies were gummy and drooped over on the cupcakes. I was so upset. Luckily I was able to repair the cakes, not the mmf butterflies though. So I need to find out what I can do about this problem. I have had it happen before but not this bad. It has really made me want to say NO MORE summer cakes, only winter cakes!! Any help with this matter would be much appreciated. I feel like I will have to just decorate the cakes at the final destination, but that sometimes would not work, Please help me, I have more cakes to do next week!! It makes me sick to my stomach every time I think about it. All my hard work just melting like that takes a lot out of me!! Thanks Kelly
Try the Charlotte's BC in the Recipe Section here. And use well-dried gumpaste for the butterflies. And if you would rather use fondant, then buy the commercial stuff. Or at least add some tylose.
Thanks a lot. I will check that BC recipe out.
Indydebi's buttercream is great, too.
