I have a couple of recipes that call for corn syrup. I don't know what it's for...but it tastes great.

That's what I was thinking. It makes it pretty smooth!

it helps make the buttercream a "thin" consistency. great for when you are piping messages on your cakes. or scroll work.

hi, i live in asia, and corn syrup is almost non-existent here (i say almost, because i know they are sold in one or two places, but really far from me).

so i used glucose syrup to replace corn syrup. but i've only used that in fondant.
