I use the Buttercream Dream recipe, found here in the recipe section. It is soooo tasty!

I use a crusting buttercream like IndyDebi's under my fondant. Not expensive at all.

I use either butter cream or ganache. I used ganache on a round cake recently and it worked great. I tried it this weekend on a sculpted cake and didn't care for it to much. When using ganache you need to make sure it is extremely smooth because it will set up. The butter cream is more forgiving.

Here is the link to Buttercream Dream. It is not the same as the dream whip one - I think Indydebi's recipe uses dream whip. This recipe is so easy to make and tastes wonderful. I have people actually just request the buttercream - no cake! I've been making a lot of buttercream shots these days! icon_smile.gif
