When I make it with homemade, it has a clay-like consistency. It doesn't dry hard, but stays like... marshmallow fudge.

I was decorating a cake this morning, so I tried this with my leftover buttercream. I kneaded enough PS into it to make a dough, rolled it out and cut it into shapes.

It worked really well. The only thing I found wrong with it was that it was really, really sweet!! I am a sweet lover, but it was even too much for me. I guess I might use it for tiny decorations on a cookie or cake, but nothing more than that. JMHO icon_wink.gif

I use a touch of popcorn salt in my buttercream to cut the sweetness -- why don't you try that and see if it helps some.

Ok don't be too hard on me but every once in awhile I bake a BC devils food cake straight from the box and ice it with canned BC chocolate fudge icing, it's what I was raised on and it reminds me of home icon_redface.gif

Are you guys talking about rolled bc?

yup, RBC. You mix more powdered sugar to get a dough.

Canned frosting gives me the creeps. I know this is strange, but I can taste something like an after taste of bug spray.

Does anyone ice their cakes anymore, or is this pretty much a fondant site? Just wondering.

Canned frosting is possible the nastiest substance on earth...I'll be bold and say that it's even WORSE THAN WILTON FONDANT!!!

Lots of us still use buttercream! You should type that into the "search" box and see what comes up.

Long live buttercream!!!! king.gif

I use fondant from time to time, MissCathcart, but my folks like all butter buttercream.

Most of the cakes I do are buttercream. I've done a couple in fondant, but those are pretty much exclusively carved cakes at this point. Some fondant accents on buttercream, too, but even with the fondant, I iced them under the fondant, too!

I'm glad to hear that. It's just that I've noticed a lot of the, Most Saved Photos Today, seem to fondant. The cake shows on TV feature 3D cakes, and I've yet to see Duff do any serious piping. I'd really be thrilled to see Toba Garrett get her own show.

Sounds interesting, I will have to try it. and I don't know who said that MMF intimidated them, but it is a little work, but very easy. and definitely cheaper than buying fondant. All you got to do is buy two bags of miniature marshmallows and 1-2lb. bag of powdered sugar and it is work. I make it by hand as my mixer wouldn't stand up to it, but it didn't take me more than 15 min. to make it once the marshmallows melted. It tastes good too.

I just tried this since I had some leftover cookies that I did not know what to do with. The recipe was extremely quick and simple! I just threw it in my KA mixer. It is WAY less work than fondant. However, like someone mentioned, it is VERY sweet, so I rolled it as thin as possible. My husband really liked it though. Also, it cannot be stacked it used on cookies. It is soft and pliable.

WHat can not be stacked? The cookies after frosting them with the rolled frosting? I am not sure what you were saying couldn't be stacked? would this recipe work with any buttercream?

I have forgotten who wanted it; sorry about that, I hope you'll see it now.
