Hey Everyone!

I've never tried Rolled Buttercream -- so I have no idea what the benefits to using it are! I'm interested in trying it this week though! Let me know your thoughts on whether you like RBC or Fondant on NFSC and why!!

Thanks!! icon_biggrin.gif

I hope this poll is going to work! I've never used it before!

The poll didn't work! Does anyone know how to make the poll work (down at the bottom of the page...I filled everything in). Oh well, such is life!

Vote anyway!!!

I have been itching to try it but have not gotten around to it yet.

For what I have seen the benefits would be that it would make decorating a little quicker, easier, and tastes real good (a little on the sweet side because it is a version of buttercream) .

I love to use RBC. It's quick, pretty, and you can detail immediately. The trick is to roll it very thin, because it is so sweet, but it tastes so yummy on cookies, I get rave reviews with it. I keep extra in the freezer for those last-minute gotta-do-tonight cookies.
If you roll it out real thin, stick the rollingboard into the freezer for a bit, then cut out, it's easier to work with. I have tried putting onto hot cookie, but it tends to fall off later, so I use light corn syrup to 'glue' to cookie.
Good luck

I have only made RBC once and it turned out so greesy that I threw it away.

It is greasy, you have to knead it with PS a lot. I bet you will love it.

I use RBC all the time on my cookies. Letting the cookies sit overnight will take care of the greasiness also.
