Well....I made my 4 batches of IMBC last night for a larger cake due tomorrow...I only charged the customer $5.00 extra dollars...I know....stupid me ...Well it cost me over $20.00 in butter alone.. And...the last batch didn't look to have enough and all I had on hand was cold margarine...so I threw that in there...I know..I know...don't say it...But it worked!
So next xustomer who wants IMBC will be charged at least $25.00 extra...It was time consuming to make also...
Another Live and Learn lesson!
IMBC is great and when I first made it I thought that's all I would ever use. However, it can be cost prohibitive so I reserve it for very special cakes and make sure to factor in the cost!
Kiddiekakes - good to know!!! I love IMBC but, yes, it takes way more time and "finesse" than american buttercream. Did they request it specifically?
Yes..she did request it because she didn't like my standard BC which is WBH...But for the hassle and price I won't be advertising it...It takes coloring terrible too..I was trying to get sky blue and the best I could get was a muted dark blue.Also gets very soft and almost runny fast..something I am not used to...
