Hi! Does anyone know if it would be disasterous to use a peanut butter icing underneath fondant? I found a great Barefoot Contessa recipe I want to try, but I have only used buttercream under fondant in the past. Thanks!

If it is the same consistency as buttercream and holds up to temps and humidity as well as buttercream, then I don't see why you couldn't use it.

I just did that a few weeks ago. That will work fine.

It's Rob Pattinson. The guy from the Twilight movie.

You can Rylan...it's called adoption, surrogate (donates her egg), etc.!

Misdawn, how can we have both our genes in our baby?

Well you got me there.ut at least one of you could. icon_redface.gif

Or when the invitro is done for the surrogate, you could both have embryos implanted. Then you wouldn't know who had actually fathered the baby, so it wouldn't seem like one was more 'real' as a parent than the other. icon_razz.gif

I wish it was that easy =] I'd be tempted for a DNA test.

Thank You Rylan. She is my grandbaby. I am a 39 yr old young grandmother (twice over actually....my stepsons baby was just born a couple weeks ago). But she is my angel.

The only way I know to do it with boths genes is to have a relative be the surrogate. My sister and her ex husband had approached me about this one time years ago. She couldn't have any more kids and they wanted one together. So in order to have both genes they wanted me to be the surrogate. It is not exactly the same but about as close as you can get.

That would be a good idea Patticakes.

I sorta know how you feel Rylan...I can't have babies and he doesn't want to adopt, so I'm just kinda outta luck.

Hmm thats is a great idea Patticakes! Unfortunately, I don't get along with his sisters very well... knowing that her little brother is with a man.

You are right Misty, I'm just out of luck.

Patticakes, please give your grandchild a kiss from me... also to your stepson if you'd like (I'm just kidding).

As long as it is a full bodied icing, it should work.
