Ok so there is no ABCD, but I was just wondering which bc recipe people prefered and what the major difference is? I have been trying different recipies, but have yet to try one that you cook any of the ingredients. Thanks for any advice you can offer!

I prefer IMBC. It's a little more stable than SMBC (but the taste and handling are identical, so I do use SMBC sometimes). I love the taste, I love how it takes flavor, and it smooths like a dream.

I'm a newbie here and not up to date with some of the lingo. Could you please let me know what IMBC and SMBC are. I know BC is buttercream but now the IM/SM. Thanks for your help.

Here's a link to the list of acronyms that are used.

Personally I use Sugarshack's or Indydebi's both taste wonder and are quite smooth.
