I made a cake for Thanksgiving, it was my first cake that I made for others to eat (other than my family) Everyone went on and on about how cute it was but the only negative was the icing was too sweet! I used buttercream and it was good but REALLY sweet. What are other alternatives that aren't so sweet that are also easy to get smooth? Or you can cover in fondant?
You should try SMBC. It's easy to make and it's delicious! But it's not super sweet.
Here's my favorite! It's super yummy!
I use Buttercream Dream from here on CC. I love it and don't find it too sweet. If you do, though, somebody suggested that you can add a little sprinkle of popcorn salt (a very fine-grained salt sold right next to the boxed popcorn) to cut the sweetness. HTH!!
My buttercream recipe is not sickening sweet. I'm happy to share it. Just PM me.
Thank you cylstrial I am going to try that one! And I will also look up the Buttercream Dream. I've got to find something everyone will eat. Otherwise it's a waste!
