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?

Thanks everyone! icon_smile.gif

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.

Good luck.

My purple castle is covered with cream cheese butter cream rock textured after it set up. The towers are drink canisters covered with MMF with icecream cones on top.
Also fondant decorations.

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.

God Bless,

Made this one by piping with a big round tip, let it crust then squished them a bit, looked like stones

Towers were kitchen rolls covered in fondant
