I'm fairly new to cake decorating and lately it seems like I have no time at all to practice or get in here. But ok my question is, can swiss buttercream be used for all types of things like roses and borders, or what is it best for. Hope somebody can answer, I will try to get in here more often it makes me relax. Thanks
I've made SMBC but have only used it to fill or ice cakes. It's softer than american BC so I'm not sure if you could use it for roses, etc. Hopefully someone with more experience will be able to give you a definite answer!
Yes, you can, BUT you have to keep cool hands and work fast. It is butter, so it will melt in hot hands.
I forgot to mention I do let it firm up in the fridge before I use it for borders and such. I also let it firm up whne I use it for a dam.
thanks for your answers I had not been able to log in until today. I will be trying swiss buttercream.
I use IMBC, which is very similar to SMBC in consistency to pipe decorations including borders and roses.
