Just wondering if I used a crusting buttercream would it be okay? Has anyone done this before? Would it be more PITA than covering the cake with fondant?
It can be done. I made a castle entirely in buttercream. (Well, I did some of the decorations in fondant.) I let it crust, then used my brick impression mat on it. I didn't have a kit, so the towers and turrets were ice cream cones. It's in my pix-way toward the end.
absolutely.. buttercream castles are very pretty..
I did a castle cake (in my photo's) it is iced in bc, with fondant decorations.
The towers is cover with fondant, and the tops are ice cream cones dipped in candy melts.
I let my bc crust and then used an impression mat to get the stone texture. I have a castle cake to do for Oct. and it will be iced in bc.
thanks everyone! I don't have any impression mats I could use though
Your castle cakes are so pretty! Thanks for posting pictures!
