if using Butter Cream as a filling...do you still use a Butter Cream dam for support? I'm new at this and any info would be much appreciated! icon_biggrin.gif Thanks!!!

I'm new to this too, but I think that using a dam w/ buttercream would maybe help me to make the filling an even height all around

If you are using a thick layer of buttercream to fill the cake, then yes, a dam is a good idea. What you don't want is to have the buttercream squeeze out under the fondant, a dam is the protection against that. HTH
